The Sheikha Azija bint Saqr Al Nahyan Mosque has been inaugurated by the Dubai Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department (IACAD).

According to WAM, the inauguration event was attended by IACAD management and staff members.

The mosque has the capacity of accommodating up to 1,050 people.

It also includes two domes and two minarets with a height of 34 metres, as well as the Imam’s quarters, a large patio and parking.

The IACAD is the first patron of mosques in the emirate that encourages donors and builders to hand over mosques for maintenance and care, due to its desire to provide comfort for people who come for prayers.

The IACAD also aims to implement its strategic plans in the areas of construction and architecture, in cooperation with relevant authorities, based on the directives of the wise leadership and Dubai’s aspirations regarding urban development, as well as to promote the importance of mosques in people’s lives.
