Hassan Anani Mosque, one of the large mosques in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Designed by the Egyptian architect d. Mohamed Raouf Helmy.
It was established by Sheikh Hassan Muhammad Khalil Anani, and it was established in the year 1402 AH and ended in the month of Sha’ban 1405 AH.
The mosque is characterized by innovation and a mixture of ancient and modern. If you look at the mosque from the air, its shape is inspired by the Islamic eight star known as (Baghdad Star) resulting from the intersection of two concentric squares between them at an angle of 45 degrees, and the length of the side of one square is approximately 30 meters.
From the inside, it is characterized by the predominance of white and blue colors on it, although it is flawed by the large number of colorful decorations made of Moroccan mosaics (Zellij) that cover the walls up to a height of two meters, and cover the wall of the qiblah up to a height of 5 meters, as well as covering the nerves of the dome from the inside to its end, and this is religiously reprehensible. Also, the pulpit in it does not take the form of the Prophet’s pulpit, which consists of a ladder with three steps, but in the form of a balcony to which it is climbed from behind. It is distinguished by a good treatment of air conditioning vents and lighting units, which are integrated into the walls of the mosque and inspired by the design of the dome (Baghdad Star).
