One of the oldest architectural places in Jumeriah, opp the Beach. A place u must visit. The place is very beautiful and right in the heart of Jumeirah.

A visit to Jumeirah Mosque is to allow yourself to understand a little better what this culture is all about. Bring a shawl to cover your hair and shoulders when you go in (Abayas can be borrowed there) and remember to take your shoes off. Also wear something longish so you don't offend. Beautiful building!

As this is one of the few mosques where you are allowed inside even as a non-muslim, I felt this was more or less a "must-do" thing in Dubai. We arrived around 9.30 for the 10 am tour, got our rather cheap tickets, ate some breakfast at the cafeteria and joined the tour. As a woman I was asked to... More

Our mosque visit was a special session for our group and somewhat tailored to the audience. However I came away with a sense that this is the way to bridge the gaps with the major religions. Architecture is of course amazing. The hospitality polite and generous as tradition befits and the speaker informative, and with a sense of humour that... More

The main beauty of the mosque is outside, nothing particularly interesting inside. But the talk about Islam is very interesting, I had learned a lot even it was not my first encounter. Cost of the tour 10 AED and it totally worth it! Was surprised how many people attended.

This is the only mosque you are allowed inside in Dubai, but while it is worth seeing on the outside the inside is nothing special. The talk is a good initiative (cost £2), with "interesting" explanations why some muslim women were the veil - it keeps the dust out of your mouth and nose, and the full face veil -... More

The tour was well organised. At the end the group were seated in the mosque and we had a talk on the Muslim religion and customs. It was given by a lady from East London who had converted and now lives in Dubai with her husband and family. She was very informative and amusing and answered questions honestly.

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
