Phases of Construction


First considerations to build the Mosque began in the late 1980s and construction began on 5th of November 1996. The maximum capacity is approximately 50,000 people. The internal prayer halls were initially opened for worship Eid Al Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) 2007 and have remained so since then.

Its design and construction 'unites the world', using artisans, craftsmen and materials from many countries including Italy, Germany, Morocco, India, Turkey, China, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Greece and of course the United Arab Emirates. More than 3,000 workers and 38 contracting companies took part in the construction of the Mosque! Natural materials were chosen for much of its design and construction due to their long-lasting and beautiful qualities, including marble, stone, gold, semi-precious stones, crystals and ceramics.
