It has a multi-storey car park that can accommodate 4,000 cars.
In the same magnificent mosque, the complete Quran is engraved on the walls in script, which is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.
According to the local media, 30 special galleries were allocated to engrave the Holy Quran in the mosque where one paragraph was engraved in each gallery. In the first gallery, the Holy Quran inscribed on the wall begins with the first Surah, Surah Fatiha, while in the 30th gallery, it ends with the last Surah, Surah Al-Nas, after which the concluding prayer of the Quran is also engraved.
It was inaugurated by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on the 1st of Ramadan at the beginning of this year’s Ramadan.
This mosque has gained uniqueness in the world for having the entire Holy Quran engraved on the wall and has also set a world record, but even before that it has two world honors which are listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.
