Ahmed Al-Fateh Mosque is located in Manama, Bahrain’s capital, and is part of an Islamic center. The center includes the mosque, a department for Qur’anic studies and an Islamic library. Construction work of Ahmed Al-Fateh Center began in 1984. It was opened in 1988 by the late Amir of Bahrain, Sheikh Isa bin Salman Al-Khalifa. The mosque occupies an area of 6,500 square meters and it can accommodate up to 7000 worshippers. Daily congregational prayers as well as Friday prayers are held at the mosque.
Italian marble covers the floor and part of the walls of the mosque. The dome is made of fiberglass and has twelve stained glass windows. The mosque’s fabulous doors are made of teak wood imported from India. The central chandelier was made in Austria and is surrounded by numerous hand-blown round lamps made in France.
The Kingdom of Bahrain has adopted a policy of modernization while preserving the Islamic values and the Arab character of the country. Ahmed Al-Fateh Islamic Center was established with a mission that reflects and promotes this policy.
