Egypt’s Ministry of Endowments inked a protocol on cooperation with Masajid Construction Development Corporation to restore and renovate a number of historical mosques of Ahl al-Bayt (the family of the Prophet Muhammad) across the country, particularly the Imam Sayyid al-Hussein Mosque.
The leading construction development firm Masajid won a $150 billion deal to develop the Imam Sayyid al-Hussein Mosque in a move expected to expand the scope of its operations within and beyond the country.
Commenting on this signing, Dr. Niazi Salam, Chairman of the Board of Trustees said the renovation work at many heritage places is currently going on under the auspices of Egypt’s Engineering Authority of the Armed Forces.
The restoration work is expected to renovate the interior halls of mosques and their rich and elegant architectural decorations, in line with the historical and spiritual nature of shrines, and to develop the roads and squares leading to the sites as well as the surrounding facilities.
The company will be in charge of renovating electric infrastructure construction, providing roads, communication networks, electricity, and water systems as well as updating security cameras.
It’s worth mentioning that the Minister of Endowments Dr. Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa Mabrouk, Cairo Governor Khaled Abdel-Aal, Mufti of the Republic Dr. Shawky Allam, and a number of high-ranking officials will witness the signing of the protocol.
