Al Noor Mosque

Sharjah • United Arab Emirates

Bordering the lagoon on Buhaira Corniche, the Al Noor Mosque is another example of Sharjah’s rich tradition of Islamic architecture. The intricate formwork, sweeping curves and spires of such mosque projects requires a thorough knowledge of Islamic design and a commitment to the finest detail.

It also demands continuous research to find advanced building materials able to preserve the beauty and integrity of these hallowed structures for generations to come. The erection of Mosques is not mere construction. It is a labour of love.
