Abu Dhabi Mosque Development Regulations Design Abu Dhabi Mosque Development Regulations 2 volume Volume 2 Design Summary of Mandate In 2008, His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, mandated the formation of the Abu Dhabi Mosque Development Committee. Its purpose is to deliver upon the vision of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, for the continued fulfilment of the grand design envisaged by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Father of the Nation, and the ongoing evolution of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The Mosque Development Committee (MDC) is responsible for preparing a strategy to direct the development of mosques in the Emirate. Its objectives include optimising the distribution of mosques and enhancing their role within communities, encouraging design innovation while preserving Emirati architectural heritage and ensuring that mosques are built, operated and maintained to the highest international standards. Accordingly, the MDC has completed the following: • A comprehensive Emirate-wide survey and conditions assessment of all existing mosques to identify which may be replaced to regulate distribution and capacity based on population density; • A web enabled application processing tool that identifies gaps in supply and demand to determine the optimum location of future mosques; • An Emirate-wide cleaning and maintenance programme that ensures all mosques are serviced to the highest international standards for public buildings; • An Emirate-wide programme that enables all mosques, including those that are privately owned, to be managed and operated by the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments (Awqaf); • An Emirate-wide programme that enables all temporary mosques to be replaced with new permanent ones where required; and • An Emirate-wide regulatory framework that addresses the planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance of each mosque to ensure best practice standards are applied during its complete life cycle. As such, the MDC is pleased to issue the Abu Dhabi Mosque Development Regulations, a regulatory framework that will safeguard the development of mosques well into the future.
