Mariam Al-Batool Mosque, Paola

Mariam Al-Batool Mosque (Arabic: مسجد مريم البتول‎, lit. "The Virgin Mary Mosque", also known as Paola Mosque or Corradino Mosque) is a mosque located in Paola, Malta. The first stone of the mosque was laid by Muammar Gaddafi in 1978 and its doors were open to the public in 1982, and officiated in 1984. The initial scope of the building was to serve the Muslims in Malta, at the time mainly economic migrants from Libya, and to promote conversions to Sunni Islam among the Maltese society.
Even though there are a number of other Muslim places of worship in Malta, the Mariam Al-Batool Mosque is the only officially recognized and mosque-designed structure in the country, so it is colloquially referred to in Maltese as simply il-Moskea (lit. "the Mosque"). The building of others have been proposed.
