for any one who is in Doha, either resident, tourist or on business, if you can take a few hours out to visit this place you wont be disappointed. An exceptionally beautiful and understated building that is kept in pristine condition by the care taking staff. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and a magnificent building to have the opportunity to see.

From outside, this mosque is architecturally very basic and hardly befitting a state mosque but once you enter it, it is harmonious and serene in style and built along the traditional architecture. All the simple architectural elements work together beautifully. As a lover of Islamic calligraphy, I was very disappointed with the the total lack of it? For non Muslim... More

We went to visit the mosque by chance at prayer time and so saw it in action. The bathrooms were very clean and decorative. The mosque itself is very large and has colourful decorative windows. I have never seen so much parking next to a mosque. Outside the views of Doha were a great photo opportunity. There were signs up... More

Amazing structure. Beautiful and serene. Great view of the west bay towers. Perfect place to pray Friday prayer as it is full of life.

This is Qatar's one of the biggest masjids. It is one of the masterpieces in Qatar. Great example of modern architecture and mixture of Arabian culture as well. Huge chandeliers in side and all the modern amenities are available. Lots of parking area outside in the basements as well.

My wife and I visited as part of a tour conducted by the Fanar Cultural Center. Since it was an introduction to Islam, we were there for quite a while during the evening prayer as our guide discussed the tenets of Islam. It's a beautiful modern mosque. Be sure to visit it if you can. Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu... More

Settled up hill from the corniche is the State Grand Mosque with a beautiful view over Doha inner city. The mosque itself it worth a visit and the staff there is quite nice and open compared to other Doha experiences where they normally just ignore you. The mosque fits 10.000 men and 5.000 women each friday.
