In this day and age where everything is pretty much related to technology, it was only about time for a smart and green mosque to become a thing.

The UAE have been paving the way for the Middle East and the world when it comes to smart technology. From robo cops to driverless buses and much more, so it’s not necessarily a surprise to find out that the smart mosque is going to be there.

The mosque –which is actually an old that is being refurbished– will be opened to the public very soon in Ras Al Khaimah’s Muairidh area.

“The speakers of the mosque turn on automatically the moment the Imam stands on the carpet for leading prayers, and later turn off at the end of the prayer. The lights of the mosque are solar-powered and automatically turn on and off depending on the time of the prayers and number of worshipers” Hisham Al Refaei Al Mansuri, the supervisor of the project, told Khaleeji Times.
