The Department of Islamic Affairs in Sharjah inaugurated the Shifa mosque located in the Al-Ateen area in Sharjah.
The place of worship can accommodate around 515 worshippers, including 65 women. It is located along Al Dhaid Road.
The mosque is built on a total land area of 4,601 square metres, and was built according to the Islamic architectural style mixed with modern character, topped by five circular domes and a lighthouse with a height of 21 metres, with the presence of service facilities from toilets, ablution, housing for the imam, and a number of car parks.
The Department of Islamic Affairs in Sharjah said the new mosque is in line with the vision of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah. The Sharjah Ruler aims to create and "nurture an atmosphere of faith for the residents of the Emirate", the authority added.
The “Sharjah Child-Friendly” project led the emirate to win the 'Child-Friendly Social Services' category of the Award from among 227 projects presented across the six award categories.
Established in 2017 by the late Sheikh Khalid Bin Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, the Sharjah Architecture Triennial is one of the late Sheikh Khalid’s imprints and the best-known monuments and the first and foremost platform for architecture and urbanisation in the Middle East, North and East Africa and Southeast Asia.
As per the new law, the committee specialisations are to include setting the general policies of social care in the emirate, classifications of individuals deprived of social care, defining the procedures dealing with these individuals, ensuring the rights of these individuals, and assigning foster families or entities that would take care of these individuals.
In addition to the new cases, 1,842 individuals have recovered and four people passed away.
The nine women wore patches with the words “better broken windows than broken promises” in reference to the Suffragette movement of the early 20th century.
Infections have been reported in more than 210 countries and territories since the first cases were identified in China in December 2019.
