World Bulletin / News Desk

The United Arab Emirates has opened its first Quick response (QR) coded mosque in Dubai.

Referred to as the world's first 'smart mosque' worshippers attending the Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum mosque in Jumeirah 3 are able to get information about the mosque by scanning the QR code with their smart phones.

The code will give them access to information on the history, capacity, nature, area, prayer timings, lectures or courses offered by the mosque, along with information about Friday sermon.

Dr Hamad Al Shaibani, Director General of the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities (DIACA), told the Khaleej Times "We are using the QR code technology to identify all mosques of the emirate to help develop and add more value to them."
