The Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque & Centre (Arabic: مسجد ومركز الفاروق عمر بن الخطاب) is located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The mosque is named after Umar bin Al Khattab, a companion of the Prophet Mohammed who became the second Caliph after Abu Bakr and was given the title Al Farooq, meaning someone who distinguished truth from falsehood. The original Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque was established on the same site in 1986. The building was renovated twice, in 2003 and later in 2011 by the order of Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, the chairman of the business empire that bears his family name and whose interests stretch from vehicle sales, schools and hotels to engineering and publishing. It was opened to the public on July 29, 2011. The Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque can accommodate 2,000 worshipers and is considered one of the UAE’s largest mosques and the third of its kind to open its doors to non-Muslims after the Mosque of late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan in Abu Dhabi and the Grand Mosque in Jumeirah. The Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque & Centre has welcomed Islamic religious figure Sheikh Ahmad Ali Al Nahas, Muazin of Haram Al Maki.
