What Are The Features Of The Mosque?

Talking about the mosque, the ruler of Sharjah delivered a sermon, wherein he talked about its construction specification, facilities, and even all the services provided to the worshippers. At this point, it is worth noting that this mosque has the capacity to accommodate 1,300 worshippers. This comes as no surprise because the mosque is spread over a massive 4,353.6 square metres.

Moreover, the religious building also has two minarets, each of which is 60 meters long! These beauts are characterised by four circular domes, so this gives the mosque distinctive engineering characteristics. During his sermon, the ruler of Sharjah also mentioned the importance of this building and its humongous impact on the Islamic community.
