The King Hamad Grand Mosque is being built on the instruction of king Hamad between the islands of Manama and Muharraq. The construction of the compound and its beauty and facilities pale into insignificance when the king attests that this new house of worship is destined to be used by all Muslims without exception; in his presentation yesterday, he stated:

As all Muslims pray in one direction, this new edifice will be for all Muslims without exception, inshallah.
This is excellent news which need to see the light and we must ensure that this vision is not once again hijacked by the sectarian effluent of our society.
When this mosque is completed and we see people from all sects in Islam praying next to each other, with a shared lead in prayers and its calls, then King Hamad can be assured that his place in history is not only assured, but elevated considerably by this action.
I hope that this is indeed the case and my interpretation is correct. It is projects like these which bring the community together and should act as a gateway to correct the sectarian imbalance we suffer from in a practical sense, rather than just empty words uttered by high and low officials which are never more than media fodder.
This project is very much JustBahraini endorsed and approved.
