   Reading 2 min

Opened in 2019, the Quranic park in Al Khawaneej, Dubai is the first Quran-inspired park in the world. Here, visitors can learn about Islam, its traditions, practices, and core values of peace, love, and tolerance. Covering an area of 64 ha and open seven days a week, the park includes such main sections as the Glass House, the orchards, the lake, and Cave of Miracles.

The Glass House is a greenhouse where the plants, trees, and medicinal herbs mentioned in the Holy Quran and Sunnah (Islamic traditions) grow; these are the ones which do not survive in the desert climate. They include pumpkin, cucumber, watermelon, and many others. There is a signboard against each plant with its name and some information about it. In the House, one can also find a small artificial stream with fish and an observation deck giving a complete view of the greenhouse.

The park includes 12 orchards. They contain more than 12 various species of plants which do not require a controlled environment: the Sidr and palm trees, bananas, pomegranate, grapes, olives, dates, and others. In the orchards, there are special stalls with information about the available types of flora and their benefits in food and medicine, in addition to the Quranic verses mentioning them. 

The park also houses a lake divided into two with a walkway in the middle. It symbolises the miracle of the prophet Musa, the miracle of the serpent which appeared when he threw his staff at God’s command. The Red sea parted, and the people of Israel were saved from Egypt.

The Cave of Miracles is a man-made cave dedicated to seven miracles mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah. Equipped with interactive displays, each section of the cave tells about a particular miracle with the help of animated videos and sound effects. During your visit, a guide will explain the details and walk you through the sections. 

The Quranic park offers everything one needs to spend a great day off: there are a play area for children, a cafeteria, a fountain, and even two tracks for jogging and cycling. One can hide from the Sun in shade provided by sculptuгes in the shape of trees along the walkway. They contain solar panels powering the charging stations in their trunks and the park lights. The trunks themselves are decorated with golden Arabic calligraphy.
