This is one the beautiful buildings in Doha, Qatar located in the main Doha city and very close to Souq Waqif and Al Corniche. This is also called Al Fanar building. The "Quran learning" and "understanding Quran" classes are organised there.

Great insights into the history of the culture of the area, with interesting artefacts and displays. Huge rooms emphasise the stunning beauty of some of the displays. Well worth a visit.

The Islamic Center is commonly referred to as the 'ice cream cone' because the roof is built in the fashion of an old fashioned Islamic lighthouse (Fanar), which does look a bit like a whipped ice cream. It has an interesting exhibition on the history of the Muslim faith, and amongst other things you can get arabic lessons there. I... More

The center provides an excellent introduction to the Muslim religion. You are allowed to sit in a "Call to Prayer" time. Impressive Building, Worth a visit, very intresting to see Islamic culture & views of region. The guide was informative.It fills up quickly so you stand in the hall and pray when room is full

I felt very comfortable walking through this venue. I was fortunate enough to meet a Teacher at the Center. We exchange ideas and thoughts as I'm also a Spiritual Teacher.

Prominent impressive Building, Worth a visit, very intresting to see Islamic culture & views of region. The guide was informative, intresting & friendly also offering sweet tea. The centre also offers Arabic courses. Did feel a little as if wished to convert you to Islam with leaflets but no more than other non Islamic religious sites visited.

An interesting visit of the mosque. Guide explanations and leaflets collected are a little too much oriented to converting you to islam. Not a big deal, but I personally would have loved to learn about Islam's history and background in a more neutral approach. Instead I received all sorts of information or books trying to convince me that Islam is... More

We found this a very interesting experience but go prepared for a discussion of Islam with the staff there. The display is relatively modest but gives a non-moslem a fair introduction to the Islamic faith. The staff are very attentive - we were offered a sweet tea and lots of discussion. They are keen to answer questions and to discuss... More
