Education City Mosque
Education City Mosque in Ar-Rayyan - Qatar
Under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation of Education, Science and Community Development (QF), Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies (QFIS) officially opened its new building by holding its first Friday Prayer at the Education City Mosque which was led by Sheikh Saleh Al Maghamsy.
The faculty and the mosque contain many symbolic and poetic references to Islam and its civilization. The Mosque structure rests on five large columns representing the five pillars of Islam, with each featuring a verse drawn from the Holy Qur’an. However, its intelligent, complex structure ensures that its large interior space, including the mezzanine level, is free from columns. Prayer lines are extended to the exterior landscape of the building, echoing the notion that the entire earth is a ground for prayer.
