Baitul Afiyat Mosque - Almere Netherlands

 
Ahmadiyya 'Green' Mosque Holland
Built: to be completed by 2016
Capcity: 500
Location: Almere, Netherlands


In cooperation with the municipality of Almere and the Dutch Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat the initiative has been taken to build a new mosque for the local Ahmadiyya Community. Located in the Magica Laterna Park in the Filmwijk in Almere lies a piece of land that was previously occupied by an emergency school building. The municipality wishes to redevelop the land with a building of religious function. To this end the Dutch Ahmadiyya Jamaat has initiated a plan to design and build a new mosque on this location. However, the subject of Islam has become a sensitive issue in current times. With global and local political and social unrest around the Islam, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat has taken a different approach for the design of their new mosque. The new mosque will be more transparent and open to the community, the structure itself is more contemporary and embedded into its surroundings. The acts of an isolated few cannot speak for the majority of a people. The Ahmadiyya Community wishes to show that, with their mosque and their faith, they are respectful, peaceful and open to others.Love for all Hatred for None

The foundation stone for the Mosque was laid by his Holiness Hadhrat Mirza Masroor on his Tour of the Netherlands on 7 October 2015.
