A modern large mosque built with elements of constructivism and some architectural trends fresh for the late twentieth century. It looks gorgeous. It is felt that this place is a spiritual home for many residents of Sharjah. The decoration of the mosque inside is laconic, strict. There are no special frills, so as not to interfere with communication. The huge room is quiet. You are alone with the Lord (in this case, Allah) along with your problems, troubles and joys. And this is felt by every cell of the body. Come here and wait, shut up about yours!

Description:

The King Faisal Mosque  is a mosque in Sharjah, the United Arab Emirates.

The mosque has 2 minarets which measure 70 m (230 ft) an area of 10,000–12,000 m2 (110,000–130,000 sq ft), and a capacity of 16,670 worshippers, of which 12,000 can be seated. The mosque has functions even apart from hosting male and female worshippers. The second floor is occupied by Sharjah's Department of Islamic Affairs and Awqaf, including a general library and offices, adding the library having approximately 7,000 books on Islamic thought and history, modern books on Islamic Sharia and a hadith, in addition to cultural, literary and scientific works. The ground and first floors are for men to pray in, and the basement for women. Near the women's prayer hall is a big place where people may donate clothes for the needy, under the supervision of Sharjah International Charitable Organisation, which also has offices in the building.

Thirty years after its construction, Sharjah’s King Faisal Mosque remains one of the city’s and the country’s most iconic structures. Al Junaidi’s modernist touch sets it apart not only in Sharjah but also across the UAE. It is as though the more time passes, the more timeless it becomes.
