Never had the chance to take the tour, but drove by it all the time (lived by it for a year). Very well kept. Clean. If you have the time, it is worth it to skip this mosque and visit the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

The Jumeirah Mosque is beautiful. The architecture, carpet and surrounding areas are breathtaking. However, the security is over the top. My friends and I have been around the world; literally, and we are very respectful of local customs. However, the security guard would not allow my friend to enter even though we were dressed in traditional garb and fully covered... More

The guide was well knowledgeable that expressed pride and passion not only of the history of the mosque and its architecture, but also the city of Dubai. He was inspirational, open-minded and non-judgemental.Call ahead and inquire if Nasif Kayed will be giving the tour. You wont be disappointed, but enlightened! Enjoy!

My friends took me here, as I asked to see some of the 'culture' of Dubai. I was not disappointed. It's a nice building, but what impressed me more was the very enlightened talk I heard. Walked out walking on air, really worth a visit. I even got a free copy of the Quran in English. If this review is... More

I really had no desire to see another mosque but I'm glad I went to this one. While the inside was beautiful the gentleman who gave the talk/tour was a joy. Very down to earth, pleasant and easy to talk to. I would do this again!

This place is very good. Located near to the Jumeirah beach. The architecture of the mosque is really nice to see though we could not go inside.

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.
