The Al Bidya Mosque in Fujairah is the oldest standing mosque in the United Arab Emirates. The most recent dating analysis of coral stone in the structure suggests it was built in 1599.⠀

The mosque is distinct for its unique design, with a small prayer room sitting below four unequally sized, layered domes. The domes are supported by a single central pillar. ⠀

The mosque had been painted white prior to restoration work on its structure, grounds, and nearby watchtower (pictured behind it on a hill) in the past couple decades. It is now a natural stone brown color. The fortified tower is one of two near the mosque that were constructed by the Portuguese.⠀

Please accept the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations best wishes on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan.

The National Council recognizes Ramadan as being an extraordinary opportunity for self-sacrifice and fasting. It provides a fertile period for extended inward reflection and growth.

Ramadan is renowned for being a time for piety and for the abhorrence of the ills that afflict those who have been wronged. It is an opportunity to revive and concentrate on the elemental ideals of justice, peace, family, and equity – all for the betterment of humanity.

This year, as ever before, Ramadan is honored for being a time of restoration. It promotes the faithful's renewed commitment to deeply-rooted Islamic and universalistic values that stir and strengthen souls everywhere.

Ramadan brings a time for deepened compassion and understanding. It is an opportunity to lessen the suffering of humankind's less fortunate.

With renewed warm wishes that the holy month of Ramadan will be one of blessings for you and your family,

Ramadan Mubarak.
