"The project aims to shed light on the life and legacy of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the divine message he lived for, thus introducing the message of eternal love and peace Islam gave the entire mankind," the official WAM news agency said.
The museum will also inform visitors on the history and practices of Islam, including the Hajj pilgrimage.
