Posted 1 July 2019 · Add Comment

The Department of Community Development (DCD) in Abu Dhabi has officially inaugurated the first multi-faith prayer room at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH).

 

The new prayer room provides passengers of all faiths with a quiet and reflective space located away from the main airport to gather and practice their faith.

Dr. Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili, chairman of the Department of Community Development said: “The Department aims to enhance the UAE’s position as an international hub for tolerance, moderation, and peaceful coexistence.”

Bryan Thompson, chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “As a global hub, we welcome passengers from all walks of life, and our multi-faith prayer room initiative seeks to accommodate the needs of our passengers from all faiths.”

“Abu Dhabi Airports’ new corporate values, which were launched last October, emphasise and reflect the core beliefs of the late founding father of the UAE, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who was known globally for accepting every individual and respecting different cultures. This multi-faith prayer room is a representation of these values, which are being implemented by our staff members throughout our activities and operations.”
