MUS­CAT: As­signed by His Majesty Sul­tan Qa­boos bin Said, His High­ness Sayyid Shabib bin Tay­mour Al Said will in­au­gu­rate on Fri­day the Sayyida Fa­tima bint Ali Mosque in the Wilayat of A’Seeb.

The mosque has been built on a to­tal area of 63,000 square me­tres with a build­ing area of 8,100 square me­tres.

The mosque in­cludes the main prayer hall with an area of 600 square me­tres and it can ac­com­mo­date 2,200 wor­shipers.

It also in­cludes a prayer hall for women with a ca­pac­ity of 330 wor­shipers.

It also con­tains a li­brary, a num­ber of class­rooms, a mul­ti­pur­pose hall, Majlis and park­ing.

The mosque is lo­cated di­rectly on the sea road in A’Seeb. The of­fi­cials of the pro­ject are keen to give this mosque a spe­cial iden­tity that links it with the ge­o­graph­i­cal and cul­tural en­vi­ron­ment in the sur­round­ing area.

The se­lec­tion of the “Mam­luk ar­chi­tec­tural style” in the con­struc­tion of the mosque to high­light one of the most im­por­tant ar­chi­tec­tural styles used in the con­struc­tion of many mosques and im­por­tant build­ings that still ex­ist to this day and pro­vide some of the ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails that were used in that golden age of the his­tory of the Is­lamic na­tion.

The Sayyida Fa­tima bint Ali Mosque is an im­por­tant ad­di­tion to a long se­ries of mosques that have been erected through­out the Sul­tanate and is a land­mark of the blessed pe­riod of His Majesty Sul­tan Qa­boos bin Said serv­ing the cit­i­zens at present and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions of Oma­nis.
