Mary, Mother of Jesus Mosque located in Al Mushrif, a central neighbourhood in Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, created much buzz on its discovery, and that is because of its unique name. interestingly the mosque is also called Mariam Umm Eisa Masjid (Arabic: مسجد مريم أم عيسى ). It was built in 1989 as Mohammed Bin Zayed Mosque, and named after Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. However, on 14 June 2017, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, decided to rename the mosque to “Mary, Mother of Jesus Mosque”. The change was done as an initiative exemplifying the values of co-existence among religions in the UAE. Mariam Umm Eisa Mosque initiative embodies co-existence, tolerance in UAE. So the Moslem community in Africa have a few lessons to learn on co-existence from their Arabic brothers.
