25 Ramadan 1435: 23 July 2014

I tried to find out how many mosques there are in the UAE and depending on the source, the number differs between 1400 and 5000.  Over 400 have been built in Dubai in the last 6 years so I think the number is a lot higher than 1400!  I would estimate there to be over 200  in Al Ain alone, so why so few photos from my “home” city I hear you ask?  Isn’t it always the same – you take loads of photos on holiday but not so many when you are close to home?

Today’s mosque isn’t in Al Ain but you can find it – and a few built to the same design – in my second UAE home,  Liwa



Wishing all our Muslim friends “Ramadan Kareem”.  May this Holy Month be a blessed one for you and your families.
