This is a huge mosque in the center of Abuja. Friday pray usually celebrate here. Although this is the main mosque of the city but it has very little ornamental patterns. The form of dome and minarates are far from their origin.

Visit the mosque with a local guide in order to enjoy it's beauty in silence. If you come as foreigner alone, expect to be harassed by sellers of all kinds of goods. Some interesting shops at the mosque selling Halaal goods.

This is a Muslim prayer and learning location in the Capital city of Nigeria. It can accommodate a good number of worshippers and scholars. A good place to visit and worship.

It is a centrally located place of worship for all Muslim faithfuls. It is a beautiful structure, well aired and stunning with its Iranian style calligraphy! It is also spacious, capable of accommodating hundreds of worshippers at a time.
