It can normally accomodate five thousands of prayers and up to ten thousands on holidays.

The mosque occupies the territory of more than eleven hectares, the total area of all structures is equal to 17 700 square meters.

    Are the women’s foot washing rooms as nice as the men’s? Oh that’s right they are not allowed to worship in the mosque. Enough of this religion of hate and murder.

    Well sorry to say but this is not really a religion but rather a form of government. The religious part is just a thin veneer for public relations.
