I have posted a number of photos of this wonderful grand mosque in Casablanca and I must say that it drew me back time and time again so that I did see it during various times of the day over three days.
This photo was taken from the window of the hotel room, a spot which allowed me to see the mosque last thing at night and first thing in the morning.

Seems you are 18-13mm lens and this shot was clciked at 5.52 evening time. Did you try to capture this beautiful mosque with f stops of f/10 or f/15? I think the shutter speed could be reduced to 1/60 seconds , thus enhancing the beauty of your "jewel', and darkening the number of TV dishes just infront of the balcony.

Hi Klaudio, I am envious about this hotel room with a view :). Fantastic to see this great mosque and towers just right in the morning and late in the night. Excellent night shot.
Have a nice day

a beautiful architectural mosque indeed. You presented it here nicely with perfect light and depth. The underlight portions are visible here and we can make a clear idea about it's surrounding... Excellent shot. Tfs.

This mosque is now one of my 'I must see's after viewing your beautiful shots of it. So I must arrange a trip to Morocco soon... or maybe you may share more photos from there. Have a nice day.

Well, this is striking.
It reminds me of a red hot poker from the blacksmith's forge, yellow hot, turning to red-hot!
It stands out so well against the deep purple of the sky and the surrounding buildings.
A fine, near-symmetrical composition.
My warm regards,

How lucky to have this view from your hotel window! Nice idea to photograph it on the dark background of the night sky in stark contrast with the buildings in the foreground.
Reminds a bit of the Mostar Campanile...

A picture with beautiful colors and
atmosphere. Composition and the light
management are great and the vertical
position emphasize the depth.

Karanlığın içinden yükselen ilahi bir ışık gibi...
Renkler ve kompozisyon çok yerinde...

Of course, a "jewel" that wins decisively over the nether world, sprouting majestically over the brought-to-heel city!
