Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center Celebrates 10th Anniversary in the Most Special Way
As if you needed a reason to visit Abu Dhabi. Hajj: Memories of a Journey, an exhibition that tells the story and history of Makkah and the rituals of Haj, will open on September 19, at the grounds of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
Organised by the mosque, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority, the exhibition will bring to life the significance of the sacred practices, while underlining the evident attributes of tolerance, equality and the diversity found in Islam.
“Millions of Muslims descend on Mecca every year from all around the world to take part in rituals that bring them together in humility and unity, while reviving some of the deepest Islamic and cultural connotations,” HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman of TCA Abu Dhabi, said in a statement. “The significance of the Hajj: Memories of a Journey exhibition stems from these qualities of solidarity and the wide cultural dialogue, fostered by the fifth pillar of Islam.”
