Ufa administration intends to start the erection of the Islamic center, called “Peace and Concord” in Ufa in April. The center will include the Academy of Islamic Sciences, the Ufa Central Mosque with the conference-hall, the primary Muslim school, the kindergarten, the guest house, the charity house and many other buildings.
The ground area at 21 hectares is already allocated for construction of the Muslim center in Ufa. The initial finances are available too and the company, which is to be occupied with erection of the center, is determined too. It is know that this company has erected the mosque “Cull-Sharif” in Kazan.
The Supreme Mufti of Russia, the chairman of the Central Clerical Muslim Dept RB Talgat Tadjuddin has already constructed the one-meter high model of the future Muslim church with the help of specialists in his residence. The multicolored crockery was chosen as the building material for the model: crystal flower vases, bright salad bowls, plates for fruits and beer and wine glasses. The minaret’s dome is made of a crystal tall wine glass without stem.
The Supreme Mufti intends to organize excursions to his residence for Ufa pupils. During these excursions the pupils will admire the original model of the future Muslim center and acquaint themselves with the traditions and history of Islam.
