My project represents the Masjid of Imam Ali Bin Abi Talib which resides in BurDubai, opposite the area where my sister and I spent our time back in childhood days. Needless to say, laying my eyes on this photo refreshes my memories of those old days we shared with our beloved ones.

 

Imam Ali Bin Abi Talib Masjid is considered one the oldest ones in the UAE, it was built back in 1932 upon the approval of HH Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed AlMaktoum , through individuals collaboration (Haji Jasem Bin Obaid AlBagali, Ibrahim Bin Ali AlSayegh, Jafar Ali, and Mohammed Kareem) who contributed to put this Masjid together, it was relatively small and very simple in design. In 1979, Imam Ali Bin Abi Talib Masjid was thoroughly re-inovated introducing beautifully designed larger masjid.
