Zayed National Museum



Providing a contemplative space, the displays will explore the Holy Qur’an, the life of the Prophet Muhammad, and religious practice as expressed through beautifully calligraphed manuscripts, tiles, models of mosques and other honoured objects. It will also reveal Islam’s acceptance of other faiths. The lives of Sheikh Zayed and ordinary Emiratis will be presented through an exposition of the Five Pillars of Islam: photographs, films and spoken recordings will show how faith shapes the everyday existence of the UAE.

"To treat every person, no matter what his creed or race, as a special soul is a mark of Islam." The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
