SHARJAH: As per the directives of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, the Department of Islamic Affairs in Sharjah has commissioned the building of a mosque in the Home for the Elderly in Al Juraina area, Sharjah.

Abdullah Khalifa Yarouf Al Sabousi, Director of the Department of Islamic Affairs in Sharjah, praised Sheikh Sultan’s keenness to respond to the desire of the home for the elderly and the attention he gives to all segments of the community, providing them with a comfortable and a decent life across the emirate.

Al Sabousi stressed that the department has commenced procedures with the concerned departments in the emirate for the construction of the mosque and its service facilities according to the best standards and requirements to maintain the emirate’s position as an age-friendly city.
