Mohammed VI Mosque opens in Conakry, Guinea

The official opening of the Mohammed VI Mosque in Conakry took place after Friday prayers on March 29. There was a ceremony coordinated between Morocco’s Mohammed VI Foundation for African Ulema and the Guinean authorities.

The Mohammed VI Mosque in Conakry, whose construction began with an inauguration presided over by His Majesty King Mohammed VI in 2017, was built according to authentic Moroccan architectural standards. It has a capacity to accommodate more than 3,000 worshipers on an area of one hectare.  This religious monument includes a large prayer room, a conference room, a library, a Koranic school, a commercial area, an administrative department and green spaces.

His Excellency Isam Taib, the Moroccan Ambassador to Guinea, explained how the new mosque was a symbol of the multidimensional partnership over many decades between Morocco and Guinea. He emphasized the deep-rooted religious and spiritual connections between the two nations, steeped in Maliki rites, Ash’ari dogma, and Sufism.
