The museum named “The Age of Felicity World Prophet Museum” will exhibit replicas of the objects and places which were part of the life of Prophet Muhammad, ranging from his clothes to tools, and the Prophet’s Mosque to the Kaaba.
Prophet Foundation Chairman Mehmet Kaya told Turkish press that the museum which will be built by the foundation is set to be open to service museum in 2016.
The museum, which will have 6 stories, will be built in the Eyup district of Istanbul on an area of 3 thousand 500 meters.
Kaya expressed that the museum will serve as a bridge between the Age of Felicity (the time of Prophet Muhammad and the four following caliphs) and our current times.
The museum will house replicas of objects from around the world related to Prophet Muhammad. It will consist of objects, works and books from around the globe.
Kaya indicated that the museum will explain the prophet’s 63 years of life as a father, grandfather, prophet and Islamic leader. “Child will understand his childhood, youths his youth, and fathers his fatherhood,” Kaya said.
The museum is set to be the first of its kind in the world.
