Photojournalist and professor Steve Raymer at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, one of the world’s largest mosques that can accommodate more than forty thousand worshippers. In 2017, the mosque was ceremonially renamed after the mother of Jesus Christ — Mariam, Umm Eisa, Arabic for “Mary, the mother of Jesus.” Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi, says he ordered the change to build bridges to other religions. | Photo courtesy of Steve Raymer
