The Akhmad Kadyrov Mosque (Russian: Мечеть Ахмата Кадырова, romanized: Mechet Akhmata Kadyrova; Chechen: Кадыров Ахьмадан цӀарах дина маьждиг) is located in Grozny, the capital of Chechnya. The mosque is one of the largest in Russia and is officially known as "The Heart of Chechnya" (Russian: Сердце Чечни, romanized: Serdtse Chechni; Chechen: Нохчийчоьнан дог).

The mosque is named after Akhmad Kadyrov, the first president of the Republic of Chechnya and father to the current president of the Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov. The construction of the mosque was commissioned by the mayor of the Turkish city of Konya. The mosque's design includes a set of 62-metre (203 ft)-tall minarets which are based upon those of the early seventeenth century Sultan Ahmed Mosque (known also as the Blue Mosque) in Istanbul.

On October 16, 2008, the mosque was officially opened in a ceremony in which Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov appeared and conversed with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

The mosque is located on the picturesque banks of the Sunzha River in the middle of a huge park (14 hectares) and is part of an Islamic architectural complex, which in addition to the mosque, consists of the Russian Islamic University, the Kunta-Haji, and the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of the Republic of Chechnya.

The mosque design is executed in the classic Ottoman style, as exemplified in the architecture of Istanbul. The central hall of the mosque is covered with a huge dome (diameter - 16 meters, height - 32 m). The height of the four minarets is 62 meters, making them among the tallest in southern Russia. The exterior and interior walls of the mosque are built of marble and travertine, while the interior is decorated in white marble.

The area of the mosque is 5000 square metres and which allows a capacity of more than 10000 people. The same number of the faithful can pray in the mosque adjacent to the summer gallery.
