Wow.. Checkout The Mosque Named ‘Mary,Mother Of Jesus’ (Full Details)

The Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed mosque in Al Mushrif, a district in Abu Dhabi, UAE, was on Wednesday renamed ‘Mariam, Umm Eisa’.

Mariam Umm Eisa is an Arabic name for Mary, the mother of Jesus.

The renaming of the mosque was ordered by Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi
crown prince, “to consolidate bonds of humanity
between followers of different religions”, Gulf News reports.

Shaikha Lubna Al Qasimi, Minister of State for
Tolerance, thanked Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed for his “wise directives in carrying out
this initiative that set a shining example, and a
beautiful image of the tolerance and coexistence enjoyed by the UAE”, according to
a statement carried by WAM
Also reacting to the development, Andrew
Thompson, a senior chaplain at St Andrew’s Church, was quoted as saying:

“We are delighted that we are celebrating something that we have in common between both our faiths.
“Mary, as the mother of Jesus, is of course a holy, special figure in our communities. She is a woman who symbolises obedience to God.

“We look forward to growing in deeper understanding with our neighbours, and
we celebrate with them the new name
of the mosque,” Thompson said.
Jeramie Rinne, senior pastor of the Evangelical
Community Church in Abu Dhabi also hailed the
“Mohammad has made another generous
gesture of religious tolerance in
renaming the mosque. The UAE
continues to set the pace in this region
for peaceful coexistence and
cooperation. We are very encouraged
and feel blessed to be a part of this
nation,” he said.
