He is Englished but has been based at the Sheikh Ibn Abdul Wahhaab mosque for seven years. He was a fountain of information, exlaining everything about Islam, being a Muslim, the construction and layout of the building and... More

Visited the Mosque and went inside. Outside was more impressive than inside and my wife was not able to go into the main section and was restricted to the balcony so she didn't think it was that great.

Built with 99 domes on it to represent the 99 names of God. I do recommend visiting this mosque to see an example of modern architecture fused with traditions.

This huge mosque is best appreciated from a distance where you can see its form. You can peek at the interior courtyard from the outside but no admittance to non-Muslims. That's a shame since the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi is so spectacular and this might be it's rival (if you could only see it).

Mosques are often quiet, peaceful, and human-scaled buildings where one can pause and observe. This one was no different, and it is definitely worth a visit for any guest or tourists to Doha. Pleasing architecture, serene, and welcoming.

This is a beautiful mosque situated on top of a hill with fantastic views of Doha's West Bay area. Plentiful parking although it does get overcrowded on Fridays and Eid period. The mosque itself is very large and can hold a couple of thousand worshipers if not more. And it has great ablution facilities. Good place to visit and to... More

This was a chance to see the inside of a large mosque in use. The space but immaculate interior was well worth the visit and the staff were accommodating and readily answered questions. I felt the good side of this religion could have been promoted here.
