Grand Mosque to Welcome Worshippers for Ramadan After 3-year Break

After a three-year suspension for maintenance and COVID-19 precautions, the Grand Mosque in Kuwait, which is known as one of the most important Islamic landmarks in the country, has reopened its doors for night prayers during the holy month of Ramadan.

The Grand Mosque is the largest in Kuwait, spanning 45,000 square meters and capable of accommodating over 60,000 worshipers.

The mosque was designed to portray the Islamic architectural heritage & culture, drawing inspiration from both local Kuwaiti and Gulf styles.

According to a statement made to KUNA on Wednesday, Tarrad Al-Enezi, the Assistant Undersecretary for Cultural Affairs at the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, stated that the cultural affairs department is actively promoting moderation and Islamic culture to various sectors of society through seminars, lectures, conferences, and cultural forums.

Preparations for Ramadan are underway at the Grand Mosque in Kuwait, including scheduling Tarawih prayers with 10 reciters and various activities such as Quran memorization competitions and Ramadan banquets.

The Grand Mosque's activities are not limited to Ramadan only but include cultural and artistic events throughout the year.

Construction of the Grand Mosque began in 1979 at the initiative of the late Amir Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and was completed in 1986.
