The rector of the IIU institute recently told the Arab News that Saudi Arabia is about to begin construction on a mosque. At the new campus of IIU- the International Islamic University in Islamabad, a mosque will be named after King Salman bin Abdul Aziz.
“This is not going to be just a mosque,” said Dr. Masoom Yasinzai, “King Salman mosque will have a large complex along with a research and cultural center for scholars and students.” He also mentioned that it would house a library, a museum, and an auditorium named after Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Furthermore, the IIU rector stated that the research Center would concentrate on Arabic language, Islamic culture, and heritage. It will be fitted with digital technology at its heart in order to offer online Arabic courses from Islamabad to the rest of the world.
