Bahrain opened the revamped Al Noor mosque in Riffa ahead of Eid Al-Adha last week, with the project being initiated as part of the country’s Sunni Endowments Directorate to build and refurbish places of worship in the country.

According to Bahrain News Agency (BNA), the mosque has been constructed by the members of the Al-Sada family in Riffa under their father Hashim bin Abdullatif Al-Sada’s interests to rebuild the structure.

The renovated mosque was inaugurated by the chairman of the Sunni Endowments Council, Dr. Shaikh Rashid bin Mohammed Al-Hajeri, alongside residents and officials from the Bukuwara region in East Riffa.

Spanning an area of 600m², the mosque has a capacity to accommodate 1,000 people and features a residential space for the unit for the muezzin and a library.

According to BNA, the facility has been equipped with energy-saving electrical appliances, and uses solar energy to heat the ablution water.
