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

Well worth taking the time to visit here and take one of the tours for a minimal charge. As well as seeing the mosque the talk is very interesting in a friendly easy going manner. We visited here and then walked down to the beach, as anywhere in Dubai dress respectfully if you are planning on visiting.

I cannot recommend Dubai tourists visit here enough. This trip was a real eye opener. We sere welcomed into the Islamic culture and taught the ins and outs of this religion and its traditions. If you fancy exploring the Muslim faith in a bit mote detail, learning about their ways and exploring their religious building then head to the Mosque.

This introduction to Islam is good, yet a bit "simplistic" It feels like "Islam for the dummies" It is delivered by an english (heavily working class accented) lady who converted to Islam The good things is that it will give you the basics and sort of demystify some common western beliefs about islam. A little more depth would have been... More

We were a group of 4 that visited Jumeirah Mosque in the month of August. The mosque is located not far from Jumeirah Beach and is a good stop-over if you are interested in mosques and architecture. There is a coffee shop in the mosque where you can have beverages made out of camel milk. There is a 75-min session... More
