GOTEBORG, Sweden – After years of praying in halls and basements, Muslims in the Swedish city of Goteborg are rejoicing as this year’s Ramadan bings them closer to their distant dream of a stately mosque with a dome and minarat. “This year’s holy month of Ramadan brought good news for us in Goteborg,” Abdulghani Hakki, president of the Muslim Association in the city, told “The construction of the stately mosque Muslims have long dreamed of will begin in the next few weeks,” he added. After two years of planning, the mosque construction will start thanks to Saudi funding. “The construction licence was initially granted in 1996,” recalled Hakki, also a member of the Islamic Awqaf in Sweden which will supervise the building.
