Ramadan Nights: ‘Al-Qiyam’ At Mohamed Abdulrahman Al-Bahar Mosque

One of the most strikingly beautiful mosques in Kuwait is the Mohamed Abdulrahman Al-Bahar mosque, located in a prominent Surra roundabout (opposite the Co-Op area). The highlights of the mosque, apart from its grandiose interior, are the intricate ceramic Islamic caligraphy on the walls as well the stately chandeliers.

The ‘Al-Qiyam’ prayers begin at 11:45 pm, ending at 1:15 am, so they are perfect for employees who need to rise early.

  1. I especially like the one called Al Bahar Calligraphy, with a close up of the tile work. But also, those incredible slender twin minarets, with the twin mini-minarets coming out of the top – WOW. Are there special people who design mosques?
