During a meeting held on Monday, in a framework known as the European Muslim Forum, held in Barcelona, Eurasian leaders announced that they are studying the construction of a massive mosque in Barcelona, Spain.
Muslim leaders from Europe and Asia have laid the foundations for a new office that will study the construction of a giant mosque in the city of Barcelona.
As part of the celebration of a meeting between Islamic and other ‘spiritual’ leaders from different countries held this Monday in Barcelona, Islamic leaders from Europe and Asia have now decided to research the possibility of building a giant mosque in Barcelona.
The forum’s president, Malik Abderrahman Ruiz, said that Barcelona, despite being “the city with the largest Muslim community in Spain”, does not have a mosque that was cooperatively built and that is why it is time to “carry out a large-scale project” .
Other Pro-Islamic Actions
The meeting, convened by the ‘European Muslim Forum’, also discussed promoting the Muslim presence in culture, economy, politics and institutions in Spain. Barcelona will be the headquarters of this office because it has been considered an “ideal” place.
This office will also be dedicated to promoting cultural activities, relations with institutions and social action, especially in favor of immigrants. At the head of the meeting that was held at the Barceló Raval hotel was Abdul Vakhed Niyazov, president of the public wing of the Russian Mufti Council.
Niyazov has explained that “Barcelona is a big city, with a lot of Muslim population” and that, unlike the mosques that are now in the city, they are working to make the building of the new mosque “emblematic and beautiful”.
