Thanks to Dubai Municipality’s sustained efforts, Dubai has plenty of green spaces and parks that offer excellent outdoor experiences for all age groups. However, with Dubai constantly striving for more, there’s always something new and unique to look forward to. Quran park Dubai is one such creative initiative that aims to build a unique, Quran themed Islamic Garden offering glimpses of Islam and Quran in a novel way.
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance, and Chairman of Dubai Municipality, has approved a project to open a cave and glass house within the Quran Park, featuring many of the things that are mentioned in the Holy text. Spanning over 60 hectares, the upcoming Quran Park in the Al Khawaneej area, will have 12 gardens and solar trees with designs drawing inspiration from Islamic calligraphy. The trees will also feature solar panels and Wi-Fi networks with facilities for charging mobile phones.
While the glass house project will be home to many of the plants mentioned in the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), such as Olive trees, Pomegranate, figs, wheat, ginger, corn, basil, cucumber and more, the Cave of Miracles will illustrate the miracles mentioned in the Quran using latest interactive technologies.
“The park is a great opportunity to explain the meaning of a lot of wonders and miracles mentioned in the Quran in the scientific and medical fields,” remarked Hussain Lootah, Director-General of the Dubai Municipality.
The Quran park will not only be an Islamic garden, but also a great place of entertainment for all. In addition to the gardens and cave, the park will include children’s play areas, shops selling herbs and plants, entertainment activities and other facilities.
We are certainly looking forward to the opening of Quran Park in 2017.
