The mosque will be the largest of its kind in Dubai, spread across 105,000 square feet that can accommodate 3,500 worshippers. 

The Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation (AMAF) on Saturday announced the construction of the first eco-friendly mosque in the Islamic world is 85 per cent complete and is set to open doors to worshippers shortly.

Suspended ceilings have been installed in the ‘Awqat’ and ladies hall. Marble-inlay work on the walls of the prayer hall has been completed. Additionally, exterior plastering on the facades of the mosque, as well as wooden doors and cabinets in the kitchens of the Imam block have been installed. Meanwhile, Dubai Water and Electricity Authority (Dewa) has deployed transformers to the site. The contract for granite works at the entrance of the mosque has been awarded, while the installation of the crescents, ablution chairs and handrails has also concluded.

Tayeb Al-Rais, Secretary General, Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation, said: “We are delighted to announce the imminent opening of the Islamic world’s first green mosque to worshipers. The mosque will be the largest of its kind in Dubai spread across 105,000 square feet with a built-up area of 45,000 square feet that can accommodate 3,500 worshippers. Through this mosque, we hope to inspire many more such eco-friendly initiatives that are in line with Dubai’s vision for a sustainable future.”
