Sheikh Zayed Mosque – located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was started by the late President of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. His last resting place is located on the grounds beside the same mosque. It is the largest mosque in the UAE and the eighth largest mosque in the world. It is the important place of worship for Friday prayers and Eid prayers. It is the largest mosque in the UAE and numbers during Eid can be more than 40,000 people.
The architectural structure makes a striking effect, with the soaring positive mass of the prayer hall stable by the huge implied volume captured within the towers. It is a right tribute to a man who left such a deep impression on the lives of so many people and left a legacy of economic and social growth to his nation. The basic necessity for a mosque is to cover Prayer Hall where followers can gather and pray during prayer times. Besides these compulsory prayers, Muslims can perform personal prayers at any time and they are also encouraged to perform Friday prayers and Eid prayers.
The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is hence an amazing mixture of global art and culture, combining Moroccan and Syrian architectural inspirations with the decorative culture of numerous nations in addition to the UAE like Turkey, Iran and Germany and finishes from Greece, Italy, China and some other countries.
