The mosque can accommodate up to 40,000 people at the same time.

Looking down at the Persian carpet in the Hall, it is known as the world's largest hand-woven carpet, said to be 5627 square meters, larger than a football field. The carpet is hand-made by 1,200 women in Mashhad, Iran, and it takes 18 months to knit it with 38 tons of wool. It is beautifully patterned, colorful, three-dimensional and, most amazingly, nearly 6,000 square meters of carpet, without a single stitch. It was said to be worth $5.8 million, of which $2.3 million was paid to the carpet-weaving village, which weighed 35 tons and used two transport aircraft. The extraordinary grand mosque, which took more than 3,000 workers and took 13 years to build, is seen from afar, bright and white, quiet and holy under the sun.
