The Biggest Mega-Mosque in Scandinavia
“In this way we can promote our moderate message of Islam. The Emir [of Qatar] would really like this.” — Mohamed al-Maimouni, spokesman, Danish Islamic Council.
Construction crews in Copenhagen have raised Denmark’s first minaret — a 20 meter (65 foot) tower-like structure that will alter Copenhagen’s low-rise skyline. The so-called Grand Mosque, which will cater to Sunni Muslims, is massive by European standards. The complex covers 6,800 square meters (75,000 square feet). The largest mosque in Europe.
