In Pictures: An Inside Look at Sharjah’s Biggest Mosque

Opened in the first week of Ramadan in May 2019, Sharjah Mosque is one of the UAE’s most spacious and most popular mosques. It’s spread across 2 million square feet, can accommodate up to 25,000 worshippers, and has a parking space that can take up to 2,260 vehicles. It is the emirate’s largest mosque, and the UAE’s second-largest, after Abu Dhabi’s famous Sheikh Zayed Mosque.

From its domes and minaret, to its columns and ceiling, the Sharjah Mosque has a breathtaking design, strongly inspired by Islamic architecture, and Sharjah Ruler Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi’s vision.

This mosque is definitely worth a visit, especially if you’re into Ottoman-style architecture or like to enjoy a peaceful walk next to the fountains and waterfalls outdoors, or even visit the museum or cultural library.
