MANAMA: Construction of a new mosque in the Jeewan residential project has started, Diyar Al Muharraq announced yesterday.

Work has been commissioned to local contractor Bawab Contracting Company and the mosque will be ready to receive worshippers in April next year, it added.

The mosque, which has been donated by a local philanthropist, will be built over an area of 1,053sqm and is set to serve a neighbourhood of 450 homes, with a capacity to receive 550 worshipers in total.

Diyar Al Muharraq chief executive Ahmed Ali Alammadi said: “We are pleased to announce the commencement of construction on a mosque in the Jeewan residential project, and extend our sincere gratitude to the benefactors for their generous donation. This initiative comes in line with our ongoing commitment to provide the necessary facilities to residents and visitors alike, ensuring all their needs are met within the Diyar Al Muharraq masterplan.”

The mosque’s unique design pays tribute to both modern and traditional Bahraini architectural design. The structure will be brought to life through a seamless combination of Islamic and Iwani motifs and geometric detailing over the mosque’s dome and minaret.

This initiative comes soon after the announcements of construction on the Malalla Mosque in the Sarat project, and Khonji Mosque in the Deerat Al Oyoun project in April.
