Visited with my wife and daughter, really to get some real cultural experience. My daughter was fascinated by the washing routine. The mosque was simple inside - maybe I expected more glitz. Credit to the guide Latifa - a cheeky cockney convert. She explained it all so well, answered questions and could talk for Islam (formerly Britain). Worth a visit... More

If you don't know much about Islam I'd recommend visiting, it is very informative and interesting. I previously lived in Saudi Arabia so have the knowledge but had never been inside a mosque which was great to see and I did learn new things. downside- I thought it was a tour when it was actually sit down on the floor...

While this mosque is certainly not the largest in the Emirates, it certainly is the most worth going to see. As well as seeing the construction and the extent of the decor, there is an extremely informative presentation about Islam.

This is the only mosque where non muslims are allowed to visit and they do one tour a day at 10am (except Friday). Women need to have their hair covered and wear clothes that cover the shoulders and legs appropriately. They will provide you with scarves and abayas if you are incorrectly dressed. You start by having the cleansing rituals... More

I enjoyed visiting this attraction. My visit was very informative and the presenter was very knowledgable as well as open to discussion. The building itself was very beautiful but can not be compared to the Grand mosque in Abu Dhabi. Although I am very knowledgable of the muslim religion I found that I still learned quite alot. I highly recommend... More

We did the tour and loved hearing about the religion and culture. There was also a Q&A. Gorgeous on the inside and extremely educational and lovely.

I expected a tour of an over the top (typical Dubai) mosque. Instead we got a 45 min lecture on the ways of the Islam/Muslim faith and why/how they pray. Don't go if you have restless young children

Went for Jumeirah Mosque tour. Must visit around 9.30 am to book tour which starts at 10 am. They close the gate at 9.50 approx & do not let any more person's in. So, be on time. I was the only Asian amidst 50-60 westerners. Briefing is done on Islam as a religion & they also take questions ( virtually... More
