    World's Largest Masjid in BT Karachi Yet another honorable gift for the Islamic world by Bahria Town Karachi Masjid-al-Haram, Makkah and Masjid-e-Nabvi, Madina are the 1st and 2nd largest Masajid in the world. With respect to their sanctity, no masjid can be holier than these Holy Masajid. After these Holy Masajid, Insha'Allah the masjid being built in Bahria Town Karachi will be the largest in the world. The masjid will have the capacity to accommodate 800,000 namazis. The Bahria Town Karachi Masjid is being designed with Islamic and Mughal style architecture, and draws inspiration from the masajid in Turkey, Malaysia, Iran, UAE and Kuwait. It has a state-of-the-art Islamic Research Centre, Islamic Museum, Islamic Cultural Centre and an International University. It also features a state-of-the-art thermal powerhouse, best air-conditioning and water supply systems.

  2. Seventh biggest masjid has been constructed in Bahria Town Lahore under patronage of Malik Riaz Hussain-CEO Bahria. I had a chance to see this masjid during visit to Pakistan and had a golden chance to meet Malik Riaz inside the masjid before its inauguaration ceremony and took memorable pictures with him. This splendid construction work has been done without any publicity in an dout of the country. Very kind regards & prayers for Bahria Management & especially for Malik Riaz Hussain.
