Puber Kalam Webdesk: A mosque is being built for the first time in the Latin American country of Cuba. 93 million US dollars are being spent on the construction of this mosque in the capital city of Havana. Havana’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia informed this information. In an interview, the ambassador of Havana, Vladimir Gonzalez, said, “We are going to get the first mosque in the country because of the donation given by Saudi Arabia.” “There is a small Muslim community in Cuba,” Gonzalez said. They are very organized. I feel honored to be able to make life a little easier for the Muslim people in Cuba.’ It is known that the number of Muslims in the small country of Cuba is approximately nine thousand. They pray at home or in temporary places. However, Friday prayers are offered at the Casa de los Arabes (Arab House). Muslim diplomats and tourists from different countries usually offer prayers here. This place of prayer belonged to a rich Arab immigrant. They lived in Cuba in the 1940s and the house was later built according to Andalusian architectural designs. So far, the country’s only Friday prayer is held there. Gonzalez said Saudi Arabia was the first Arab country to establish diplomatic relations with Cuba. Riyadh established diplomatic relations with Havana in 1956. Last year a delegation from the Saudi Fund for Development visited Cuba and inaugurated a project related to water and drainage systems in central Cuba. At that time the delegation also visited the King Salman Mosque project in Havana.
