Why Is Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Unique?

The importance of SZGMC extends beyond its position as a house of worship for Muslims. As a striking example of Islamic design, it also plays a significant part in spreading the UAE’s message of tolerance, compassion, and coexistence among all cultures.

Around 7 million individuals from diverse religions and cultures attend and pray at the mosque annually. This creates what may be an ever-changing representation of acceptance and harmony among people who meet at the intersection of cultural conversation and confluence.
It also promotes the UAE’s responsibility in spreading awareness of decency and virtue through a variety of unique programmes, activities, projects, and experiences relating to Islamic education and heritage.
