ABU DHABI, 29th September, 2022 (WAM) -- Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Prime Minister of Malaysia, has visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque as part of his official visit to the UAE. He was accompanied by Khalid Ghanim Mohammed Alghaith, UAE Ambassador to Malaysia, and a delegate of senior officials.

Dr. Yousif Al Obaidli, Director-General of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre, accompanied the Malaysian President and the delegation on a tour of the mosque's halls and external corridors.

During the tour, they were briefed by one of the centre's cultural tour specialists about Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque's noble message that underscores notions of coexistence, tolerance, and openness to the cultures, emanating from the nation's late founder's rich legacy.

They also learned about the mosque's history, components, and esthetic features of Islamic art and architecture that manifest in every corner of this grand edifice.

At the end of the visit, the guest was presented with two of the centre's distinctive publications. The first is titled "Spaces of Light," showcasing the winning photographs in the "Spaces of Light" photography award, annually organised by the centre to celebrate the mosque's scenic aesthetics and visual culture. The other is a copy of a book titled "Houses of God" about places of worship in Islamic history, including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
