Abu Dhabi’s iconic Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan mosque has been named as one of the most impressive mosques in the world by “Mosques: Splendors of Islam”. The book, which has taken eight years to create, highlights and celebrates mosque architecture and Islamic design and heritage, and features fifty historic and contemporary mosques throughout.
“The ‘Splendors of Islam’ book is for me, first and foremost, an honourable opportunity to share my fascination with intricate Islamic architecture with the world,” says author Leyla Uluhanli.

“Having been raised in Azerbaijan, I have never fully let go of my origins. I am deeply honoured to know that the book, the result of eight years of complicated visual and scholastic studies, has proved to be a valuable tribute to the Islamic culture. And the opportunity to now contribute a few copies to the libraries and cultural centres in the very heart of Islamic world further validates my efforts.”
"Mosques: Splendors of Islam” will be released in the UAE this November 2018, to commemorate the “Year of Zayed” and 100 years since the birth of the founding father of the UAE.
