Al Ain mosques #7

short and small minaret

Perhaps one of the oldest and smallest mosques here in Al Ain City. Located at 7th Street, Al Khrais Community of Al Jimi District; just few meters away from the Sheikh Mubarak Roundabout. It has one small and short minaret and one small dome. I find it odd to see a small mosque around the residential area especially if I will look at the big villas and flats around the community. Certainly, a repainting or shall I say a full restoration and rehabilitation is what the mosque need.

Words of the day:  
Sahba'a is the arabic word for number seven
Sagheer is the arabic word for small.
Kabeer is the arabic word for big/large.

Salaam to all! Have a great weekend. Keep smiling.

  6. Arabian castles and the churches are very solemn.

    It is an inheritance of the global history.
