      new Faisal Mosque Islamabad



      Completed in 1986, the Faisal Mosque
      (also known as Shah Faisal Masjid) is
      an exceptionally large and unique
      mosque in Islamabad. Designed by a
      Turkish architect who won an
      international competition for the
      honor, Faisal Mosque is shaped like a
      desert Bedouin's tent and functions as the national mosque of Pakistan.


      History

      King Faisal bin Abdul Aziz
      of Saudi Arabia both suggested (in
      1966) and largely funded the Faisal
      Mosque, which is named in his honor.

      Ever since its conception, the mosque
      has been regarded as the national
      mosque of Pakistan, and as such it
      symbolizes the hopes and aspirations
      of the new nation.
      The architect was Vedat Dalokay of
      Turkey, whose design was chosen in
      1969 after an international
      competition. Constructed was
      completed in 1986.

      What to See

      The Faisal Mosque is located on an
      elevated area of land against a
      picturesque backdrop of the
      Margalla Hills. This enviable location
      represents the mosque's great
      importance and allows it to be seen
      from miles around day and night.

      The mosque's architecture is strikingly
      modern and unique, lacking both the
      traditional domes and arches of most
      other mosques around the world.

      The shape of the Faisal Mosque is an
      eight-sided concrete shell inspired by a desert Beduoin's tent and the cubic
      Ka'ba in Mecca, flanked by four unusual minarets inspired by Turkish
      architecture. The architect later

      explained his thinking to design school
      students:











      I tried to capture the spirit,
      proportion and geometry of Kaaba in a purely abstract manner. Imagine the apex of each of the
      four minaret as a scaled explosion of four highest corners
      of Kaaba - thus an unseen Kaaba form is bounded by the minarets at
      the four corners in a proportion of
      height to baseShah Faisal Mosque akin to Kaaba.

      Now, if you join the apex of each minaret to the base of the minaret diagonally opposite to it correspondingly, a four-sided pyramid shall be bound by these lines at the base side within that invisible cube. That lower level pyramid is treated as a solid body while four minarets with their apex complete the imaginary cube of Kaaba.
      Entrance is from the east, where the prayer hall is fronted by a courtyard with porticoes. The International Islamic University was housed under the main courtyard, but recently relocated to a new campus. The mosque still houses a library, lecture hall, museum and cafe.
      The interior of the main tent-shaped hall is covered in white marble and decorated with mosaics, calligraphy by the Pakistani artist Sadeqain, and a spectacular Turkish-style chandelier.
      The prayer hall can accommodate 10,000 worshippers. (There is room for an additional 24,000 in the porticoes and 40,000 in the courtyard.)
      The mausoleum of General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, whose 1988 funeral at the site was the largest in the history of Pakistan, is located adjacent to the mosque.
