THE MOSQUES of the UAE are spectacular examples of modern Islamic architecture. The Jumeirah Mosque in Dubai and the Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi are very fine examples of the distinguished architectural creativity of the Arabs.

Dubai’s Blue Mosque is a superbly designed and unique edifice and quite outstanding in its architecture. Sharjah, for example, has 600 mosques, prominent among them are Al Noor Mosque at the Buheira Corniche and the mosque at Qanat Al Qasba.
