UAE to construct Malaysian mosque

The UAE is to construct a mosque in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with its design based on Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

News of the project came as Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, met Malaysian Prime Minister, Najib Razak, who is on a three-day visit.

The project in Bandar Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, will include a high-tech Islamic learning centre and a "Permata" – a word meaning jewel in Malay - facility for gifted children.

The design and construction of the project is being funded by the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments.

Malaysia's Prime Minister welcomed the news. He said: "This is an inspiring gift, as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque promotes the concept of tolerance, love and mutual understanding.

"This is a testimony to the strong bond between Kuala Lumpur and Abu Dhabi. It will go a long way towards cementing the relationship between our peoples."
