The names of the three Chrislam houses of worship have been revealed as Imam Al Tayeb Mosque, St Francis Church, and Moses ben Maimon Synagogue. The project, which also includes a cultural centre, will welcome visitors to worship, learn and engage in dialogue. A fifth of the project is now complete, officials said, and it is due to open in 2022. The project is a legacy of Pope Francis’s visit to Abu Dhabi in February 2019. Its design was unveiled by Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, at a meeting of the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity, in New York.
The Abrahamic Family House, which encloses a synagogue, a church and a mosque in a single complex, and which is scheduled to be inaugurated in 2022, is 20 percent complete, the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity (HCHF) said in a statement on Tuesday. The Committee, which is also supervising the project , said it is inspired by the 2019 Document on Human Fraternity. Constructed on Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, the project is closely followed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayeb of al-Azhar, who endorsed the design, the HCHF said.
The Abrahamic Family House derives its name from the Old Testament biblical figure, Abraham, who is recognized and greatly revered by Jews, Christians and Muslims.
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27 (KJB)
Habakkuk tells us that God will ‘work a work’ in the end times that we won’t believe even as we see it coming to pass, and brother is that ever the truth. For decades, end times prophecy watchers have written books and made movies warning us about the coming One World Religion we see in Revelation 13, and now as it is actually happening, the vast majority of those same people seem to be silent. Why is that? Take a look and see for yourself, Chrislam is the One World Religion and you are looking at its Chrislam world headquarters.
FROM INTERNATIONAL NEWS UAE: The names of the three houses of worship have been revealed as Imam Al Tayeb Mosque, St Francis Church, and Moses ben Maimon Synagogue. The project, which also includes a cultural centre, will welcome visitors to worship, learn and engage in dialogue.
A fifth of the project is now complete, officials said, and it is due to open in 2022.
Its design was unveiled by Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, at a meeting of the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity, in New York.

The committee is a group of religious leaders, scholars and cultural leaders who were inspired by the Document on Human Fraternity, signed by Pope Francis and Dr Ahmed Al Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al Azhar, during the pontiff’s visit to Abu Dhabi. The Abrahamic Family House’s design, by Ghanaian-British architect Sir David Adjaye, captures the values shared between Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
“Overseeing the development of this iconic project is inspiring and reflective of the UAE’s efforts in realising the values of the Document on Human Fraternity and fostering its lofty principles,” Mr Al Mubarak said. He added that the names forge a message of goodwill for future generations around the world.
The project has advanced rapidly since it was announced on February 5, 2019 by Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
Its construction in the capital of the UAE – a country home to dozens of nationalities peacefully practising a number of faiths – was particularly special, said officials.
While the places of worship are the same height, the designs and interiors will be significantly different.
“This is a really special project that hits on the trinity of this Abrahamic faith that is influencing over half the world’s population,” said Mr Adjaye.
“This new initiative by the head imam, the Pope and the head rabbi of the region … for the [leadership] of Abu Dhabi to commission this incredible project to make a statement about commonality is a very profound moment.”
The Abrahamic House is just the latest initiative to demonstrate the country’s long-standing commitment to tolerance, said officials.
Christians were allowed to practise their faith in what is now the UAE,even before the country was formed, while Abu Dhabi’s first Hindu temple is set to open its doors in 2023.
