It is architecturally beautiful and looks really special at night when lit up and you look down onto West Bay. As a non-muslim there are women there to help you when your arrive. They will sort you out with an abaya so you can look around the mosque. It is beautify inside and very peaceful

The Grand Mosque looks like an oversized ancient mosque blown up thousands of times in proportion. Inside, there is a very simple layout, yet decorated with fancy chandeliers and minimal decorative designs. Very well designed and excellent in finishing.

Beautiful mosque and very aptly named: "Grand" It is very big with more than enough space for many many people including ladies. Ample parking but would request the mosque to be open even when it is not time to pray as people would want to visit the mosque just to pray sunnah there

A nice and big place located in the centre of Doha City. Grand Mosque or Masjid Mohd bin A. Wahab or Al Dawla (country) mosque is one of the biggest mosque in Qatar or maybe the biggest. Capacity more than 6000. It's a unique architectural beauty. Everything in and out attract you.
