Dubai to build museum dedicated to the Prophet

The booming Muslim Gulf emirate of Dubai announced it will build the world’s first museum dedicated to the life of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashed al-Maktoum, has authorised construction of the museum to examine the legacy and message of Islam’s founder, state media reported.

“The project aims to shed light on the life and legacy of the Holy Prophet and the divine message he lived for, thus introducing the message of eternal love and peace Islam gave the entire mankind,” the official WAM news agency said.The museum will also inform visitors on the history and practices of Islam, including the Haj pilgrimage.

Cosmopolitan Dubai is home to over 150 nationalities and observes a relatively liberal version of Islam compared to elsewhere in the region, such as ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia.
