In the Sakirin Mosque, the large asymmetrical chandelier has water drop-shaped glass globes made by Nahide Büyükkaymakçı, "reflecting a prayer that Allah's light should fall on worshipers like rain," the rings of the chandelier are decorated with the 99 names of Allah, and the name of the mosque (beside from reflecting the family name) is a literal meaning of “those who are thankful (to God)” in Arabic, and the women's section is designed specially to allow a clear view of the chandelier to showcase its beauty and magnificence.
