Transcension

Alhamdullilah, I was previledged to visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi during the blessed month of Ramadan in 2015. The Grand Mosque was initiated by the late president of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The mosque was constructed from 1996 to 2007. It is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates, The design of the mosque can be best described as a fusion of Arab, Persian, Mughal and Moorish architecture. All images were photographed on a Canon D60 by Ali Aminu Monguno
