I thought Islam forbids building large and expensive mosques. I'm sure there is a hadis about this but I can't find it now...

Besides, it looks really ugly.

^ Have to agree that it does not look like a mosque. More like a futuristic office complex.

I don't have anything against a country wanting to build a beautiful building, even if it is not a rich country. But there are many mosques more beautiful than this one, which have been built for a lot less. I don't think this design justifies the expense.

Surprisingly wide for a mosque. Almost looks like a certain mormon church in Utah, USA.

Algeria-Iran-Mosque

Algerian Minister of Religious Affairs and Endowments, Bouabdellah Ghlamallah here on Saturday called for participation of Iranian companies in construction of the Algiers Grand Mosque.

In a meeting with Iran's Ambassador to Algeria, Hossein Abdi Abyaneh, he stressed the mosque will be the largest in Africa and the third biggest in the world.

The mosque to be constructed at the cost of dlrs 3.4 billion, will accommodate some 120,000 prayers.

The Algerian minister further voiced his country's readiness to bolster all-out ties with the Islamic Republic.

For his part, the Iranian envoy announced readiness of Iranian companies for active participation in construction operation of the Algiers Grand Mosque.

He further voiced Iran's readiness to admit Algerian students at its faculty of "proximity of religions" adding that teachings and principles of the Sunni sect are taught by Sunni ulema at this center.

The Iranian ambassador further invited the Algerian minister to visit Iran, particularly the holy city of Mashhad in the near future to become familiar with the Islamic architecture. The invitation was warmly accepted by Ghlamallah.

There are 15,000 mosques throughout Algeria which accommodate over 14 million prayers.
