Al-Hakim be Aamr Ellah Mosque

The Hakim Mosque was built in 380 AH, at the command of God, during the reign of Al Aziz Bill Allah the Fatimid, who in the year 379 AH (989 CE) began construction of another mosque outside of Bab Al Futuh, but died before completion, and so its son al-Hakim completed 403 AH (1012-1013 CE) and was therefore given to it as a Mosque known to it. That ruler. 

-Description of the mosque

Its longitude is 12005 metres and width 113 metres, therefore its area is smaller than in the area of the Amr Ibn Al-Aas Mosque, and the two minarets are surrounded by two large pyramidal bases at the border of the façade, one above another, with each base composed of two cubes and one above the top cube placed a bit above the bottom and another at the height of the upper cube. In the middle of this seafront there is an octogonal minaret and the entrance to the ancient mosque between the two minarets is high, and from each of these two upper cubes there is an octagonal minaret. Newly constructed are the arch and the wall, and on the left, the entrance And on the left is the remnant of exquisite inscriptions at the entrance, 1.60 metres in height and leading to the Mosque courtyard surrounded by owls.

-Restoration of the mosque

The mosque has long been neglected until its corridors are turned into the warehouse of other merchants surrounding the area, because it was a trade area, and until the era of President Anwar Sadat, who requested the permission to re-energize the Shias of Bohra, as well as the ruler who began to emigrate to Egypt. By the command of Allah, it was a holy figure, and Sadat was invited into the mosque and there was a fear that this would attempt to kill him, but nothing has been done and since then the Bohra Shiites immigrated to Egypt and settled there, especially in the ancient and aesthetic Cairo region and its suburbs, as traders,and its vicinity The mosque is sponsored and can be prayed in all denominations. In addition, a lot of Druze monotheists from neighbouring Arab countries are in the mosque to bless and pray in Egypt.

 

-Critique of the process of restoration

The restoration of the mosque was criticised severely. "The restoration has caused an archaeological change and it is now a new building after wasting its thousand-year-old archaeological value, leaving only the two minarets with its heritage value" Jalal al-Shayeb, the professor at the College of Fine Arts.
