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.

If u have children then they are not allowed into the main prayer area. The mosque itself has 99 domes which can be seen from the outside, and there is a chandelier per dome on the inside. At night it is lit up and worth a look. The views of the corniche skyline from outside the mosque are great.

We arrived about 30 minutes before midday prayers and the place was almost empty. The few staff present were friendly and helpful. My wife was helped to put on an abaya and then we were free to roam the building [although she was told to stay with me and not go off on her own]. The building is huge [accommodates... More

Went for friday prayers today. Apart for the beautiful mosque - the place is so serene; I was pleasently surprised to see such a mixture of cultures coming to offer their prayers. Young and old. After the prayer, a revert took the 'shahada' and was welcomed back to his religion. Wish I lived closer, would go on a daily basis... More
