Al Imam al Mahdi (AJ) mosque - Mutrah

This is the other little mosque not more than 30 meters behind the one I posted yesterday.

To me it is a bit strange to have 2 mosque (which I think don't belong together) so close together.
The internet is not giving me any answers. Hopefully I remember when I see my Omani friend. Fingers crossed she can give me an answer then...
This one looks quite small in comparison to some of the others.

I wonder why there are two mosques together. Maybe one is Sunni and the other is Shia.

I thought the same as Babs @onewing - different faith streams?

Interesting..and small in size compared to all those other ones you showed us.

@onewing @peadar It could indeed be different faith streams.

The internet says that most Omanis (about three-quarters of the country) belong to the Ibadi Muslim faith—meaning they are followers of the Abd Allah ibn Ibad—but there are some Shia and Sunni Muslims as well. Oman is the only country in the Muslim world with an Ibadi-majority population.
