The entire mosque, with a capacity of over 41,000 people, was full with the worshippers.

Both locally and globally, the mosque demonstrates the aesthetics of Islamic architecture and uniqueness of the country. Shaikh Zayed mosque is an architectural landmark that represents the cultural heritage of the country.
