Awqaf: 25 new mosques to open in Qatar by Ramadan


Qatar’s Ministry of Awqaf (endowments) and Islamic Affairs says the country can expect to see 25 new mosques open before Ramadan begins on Aug. 1 this year.

Another 71 mosques are in the works, the ministry said. And in some of Doha’s most congested areas, Qatar plans to build three-story mosques with elevators, the Gulf Times reports.

“The idea of having multi-storey mosques in crowded districts is to avoid people having to pray on streets and pavements near the mosques, especially on Fridays,” Salah bin Salem al-Bakry, director of building projects at Awqaf, said in a press conference on Tuesday.

Awqaf oversees the maintenance of some 900 mosques with a budget of more than QR460 million.

I wonder if the new state mosque will be included among the list of places opening by August?
