Inaugurated in Ramadan 1437 H (July 2016) and with arround 1000 persons capacity, Manarat Al Islam mosque in Mokattam city has been already turned into operation as a modern contemporary mosque building with light Islamic inspiration.

Interior of the mosque is designed modern with straight lines and explicit abstraction for the traditional Mihrab, Mukarnasat and the stage of the Imam (Menbar). Building consists of two mair praying halls in ground floor in addition to the open porche, public plaza, and ladies entry, in the Imam (Menbar).
