We planned to visit the Mosque at 10 am, so we could have some small tour. It's very good idea. It takes around 60-70 min and we were talking about Islam and arabic culture. It is cheap also, only 10Dhs. But if you participate in cultural meals in SMCC you can skip this tour and see the Mosque.

Going in Friday is not the best visit day simply as it is closed. However just go there on Friday and walk around the grounds and it's great to see the beauty of the mosque, certainly when it's sunny weather. If you go on other days, best is to book a tour, not much on architecture, but great learnings on... More

It is a nice mosque to see, but I agree with the reviews saying the the great mosque in Abu Dhabi is probably more worth seeing. So if your are going to Abu Dhabi, then I would recommend to see a mosque there. Also the people at the great mosque in Abu Dhabi were much more friendly. Ladies should be... More

Attended the 10am tour/talk arranged by the SMCCU. It was such a lovely experience - seeing inside the beautiful Mosque was a real privelege. The talk was excellent; many things our hostess Latifa told us I knew, others I didn't and for anyone visiting a country where the culture and religion are different to their own, this is an essential...

Unlike other countries this mosque and all the smaller ones in the Dubai area are quite plain and simple from the outside.The garden area feels very calming and the shade under the trees a bonus when temperature is in mid 30's.If we had known sooner and had the free time we would have booked in tour of the inside.

This beautiful mosque offers morning tours in English with a very knowledgable guide and a light-hearted Imman who answered all our questions (some were not very appropriate) with dignity. We removed shoes and were asked to cover our heads, and given the appropriate robe to put over our clothing. We waited in a lovely library area with some commentary before... More

This was the most spectacular mosque my husband and I had ever seen! All of the gorgeous marble, intricate details and the purposes of the different rooms were very intriguing.

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.
