Alaqroubi Mosque in Sharjah - UAE

 

Alaqroubi Mosque in Sharjah
Mosque was built more than 100 years ago by an Emirati pearl diver living in Al Khan, a fishing village in the south of the emirate.

Rashid Alaqroubi built the house of worship, which later became known as Al ­Aqroubi Mosque, in 1904, before the discovery of oil and a long time before the formation of the UAE. He wanted a place in which he and his colleagues could pray whenever they returned from the sea.

The mosque, perched on the edge of Al Khan shore, is about 80 metres wide – one of the smallest in the country.;
