Its flawless design and components tranverse through different elements of culture and religion and putting into consideration architectural standards of international quality.

This magnificent beauty is inspired by the pearl and shell which were a way of life of old age Dubai. It symbolizes culture and riches and also simplicity.

This project sits on a whopping land mass of 10,000 square metres and it can accommodate over 7,500 worshippers at once. It also consists of relaxation centres, sporting complexes, residential blocks, ablution spots, large parking spaces and state of the art facilities.

The vision of the mosque is "to blend the tradition and culture of the people and the Islamic symbol of peace into a modern-day structure".

This was achieved using three elements: the shell shape which formed the eight entrances, the pearl which forms the dome and the skylight and finally the minaret which is expertly placed on the tower vanishing towards the sky with Arabic writings beside and around it sending messages of peace and love to all and sundry with its surrounding Dubai creek having an ambience of tranquility and serenity for all worshippers.
