Al-Marhoum Mosque

This beautiful mosque stands by a roadside in Dubai. I came there at prayer time and there was barely a soul using it besides the usual three or four men from the sub-continent. The work put down on making this mosque more than just a hastily erected monument is inspiring.

Very pretty. I miss Dubai - and my friends.

I can see why you miss it. I had a wonderful time in the UAE. Maybe time to come back and visit? :)

I love this mosque. Each time I pass by it (just as I did today), it always catches my attention and I love just looking at it.

Though I'm not sure if 'Al Marhoum' mosque is apt. lol. It's named after some Falasi who passed away.
