The Jumeirah Mosque is not what I would call a typical tourist attraction, however I would highly recommend visiting. For 10 Dirham you are invited in for a talk. Our host gave us a broad and basic overview of the Islamic faith for about 45mins. The group was then welcomed to ask questions, any questions, about Muslim culture, traditions, and... More

The mosque is a symbol of Islam’s rich culture , very impressive modern Islamic architecture. Apart from being a prominent landmark, it is one of the most attractive mosques in Dubai. Qibla Wall and the Minbar are the must see sights.

Well, what an experience to spend the 70 minutes or so with the gentleman who spoke and a crowd of others. He spoke with humour and charisma and with respect to all religions and was not a billboard for Islam and covered any questions asked with grace and humility. I could tell he was a worldly and educated man and... More

My wife and I decided to attend the 10.00am tour to learn more about Islam. For 10 dirhams per person it is well worthwhile. Good presentation and Q&A enlightened us a lot more and now have a better understanding of this religion. Would recommend.

Interesting visit which costs only 10 Dhs. Tour guide explains about the religion and culture. Taxi required to get there as it is not within walking distance of the metro. Taxi's can easily be flagged down for the return trip.

Given prior reviews, this mosque tour sound it interesting. So we took a taxi from the World Trade Centre area for 15 AED to be at the Jumeirah Mosque by 9:45AM in order to take their 10am tour for 10 AED per person. On arrival, you go to cafe building on the other side of the mosque complex. They serve... More

Although the architecture of this Mosque is nothing out of the ordinary, the main purpose of the visit was to start to get an understanding of Islam. The guide we had, spoke very passionately about her religion, as you would expect her to. There was no questions you could not ask and she answered each to the best of her... More
