    PS: sis, sorry to write it here, but I applied on sisterswhoblog and my request hasn’t been accepted yet… any chance to contact the Admin somehow?? πŸ˜‰ jazakAllahu khayran!

    1. um almujahid, no problem at all πŸ™‚

      It took a few days before my request was accepted. But you can write to ambermisk @ gmail dot com (she’s the founder of the site)

    1. Ameen.

      Oh, I forgot to tell you that I’m so glad we went there at night. I think it looks more stunning in the evening with all the lights on than during the day πŸ™‚

  2. Hi Nadia !
    i saw the making of this mosque on Discovery Channel … but never saw how it looks when completed – it’s a Beautiful mosque no doubt … n off course thanks for sharning πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Sharmila! You visited after a long time … welcome back πŸ™‚

      I’d love to see the making of this mosque; I’ll check youtube and see if I can find something.

  3. It’s gorgeous, Subhanallah!

    Seeing such majestical mosque make me proud of my own religion. It represents the grandeur and elegance that comes with Islam…

    But may we utilise our mosques to do da’awah works well, to do ‘amal, and to find inner peace. Quantity does not equal quality. May the erection of our mosques not become just another display to show off, insyallah.

    1. InshaAllah! I completely agree with you, lyemoon; our masjid should be used to do da’awah and charity-related works as well. I think that’s the main reason why they offer guided tours in this masjid.

  4. Masya-Allah, the masjid is stunning at night. I instantly fall in love with the interior design. So beautiful! And grand! But I agree with lymoon. Let’s pray that this is not another one of the ‘show off’ kind of thing. Imagine if it is so… the wealth used to build this masjid is sufficient enough to be shared with our poor brothers and sisters in need all over the world.

    But then again, I pray one day I can be there to witness its beauty with my own eyes, Insya-Allah. Thanks, Nadia. Great pics you got there. Wish I could be an expert like you. πŸ˜‰

    1. Ati, inshaAllah you will πŸ™‚

      You are most welcome, sis; I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures. You’ll be shooting stunning pictures yourself soon, so don’t forget to share them on the blog!

  5. Salaam Nadia!

    MashaAllah your photos are absolutely beautiful β™₯

    I remembering seeing this back in 2006 on my first and only trip to AD. Back then it reminded of the Wizard of Oz…it was absolutely beautifully back then being under construction still…I can only imagine what it looks like up close and in person πŸ™‚

    1. Walaikum Assalam MaryAnn!

      So much has changed in Abu Dhabi since 2006, so you are due to pay another visit πŸ˜€ I’m sure you’ll love this masjid.

    1. Harebeat, the Middle East is a unique experience. I hope you get to visit this part of the world one day (during the cooler months, of course :D)
