This mosque was built to serve the neighborhood of Al-Mowasat Hospital in the city of Al-Khobar, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as to serve the passers-by on Al-Mowasat Hospital Road. The idea of ​​this mosque posed a real challenge, as we had to convey the authentic Arab cultural heritage in a modern way, and where it was necessary to consolidate the trend of modern architecture by dealing with Arabic calligraphy and employing it in an innovative artistic way, with a tremendous momentum for detailed architectural elements. The mosque can accommodate more than 450 worshippers, where the ground floor measures 21 x 12 meters for men, while the mezzanine floor is used by women with an area of ​​12 x 7 meters. The architectural elements were organized to reflect the Islamic identity and glorify the divine meaning of the sacred names of God, with the interior walls decorated with Quranic verses, in conjunction with illuminated crystal cubes engraved with the names of God Almighty to add beauty and elegance to the prayer hall. While the niches, decorated with beautiful Arabic script, emphasize a visual connection between the ground and middle floors. As for the name of the mosque “Al-Mishraq” it is derived from the local cultural heritage, which refers to the place where the worshipers sit after the dawn prayer while waiting for the sunrise.
