Coinciding with the start of the Holy Month of Ramadan, Abu Dhabi’s Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) has completed the construction of five mosques in four months amid the challenges due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Construction work on the mosques has been carried out in cooperation with Modon Properties, a development company mandated by the Abu Dhabi government to build sustainable communities and develop mixed-use projects in the UAE capital, with the structures being built in Abu Dhabi City and delivered to the General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Endowment (Awqaf).
DMT said that the five mosques were constructed as a part of its vision towards developing integrated societies, with proper precautionary procedures.
