The mosque was 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. 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.
