The visit of the mosque is interesting because of the explanation that is given about the habits and convictions of the muslim community, leaving room for questions in the last part of the session. For non-muslims some points of view are obviously very disputable, but the guide gives very open answers. After precisely one hour the session stopped despite the... More

My partner was really skeptical before going in for the morning tour but by the time it ended he was quite happy that he did it. This will really make you understand ISLAM better and it will be a great cultural activity for 1-2 hr . Try to go in the morning for the tour.

The guide was excellent, but this was not a very pretty mosque. We have visited Sultan Qaboos Mosque in Muscat ... so very different! But it's nice to be able to visit a mosque as a non-muslim.

This is a lovely peaceful place to spend an hour or so. The guide was informative and gave an interesting talk on Islam and the mosque. Such a beautiful building. There is a coffee shop and lots of books to browse while waiting for the tour to begin. be sure to have shoulders and knees covered, and ladies must cover... More

This is one of the "must do" Dubai attractions. This was no boring 90 lecturing minutes of Islam! I got a greater appreciation and understanding of Islam.

Got a tour from a British lady who was able to explain everything very well. Gives you an opportunity to ask everything about the religion. Tour was only 10DH per person. Though, make sure that you're there at 9.45AM as the tour will start at 10AM.

We are so glad we went on this interesting cultural tour espescially in today's climate. The lady volunteer was fun, informative and open to many questions. Go and explore this peaceful religion, step inside a mosque and learn about this religion and for £4 each it a good value morning.

Every visitor to Dubai should take the hour and half and learn about the Islamic religion an important component in the Emirati culture. I take everyone who comes here for a visit.

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
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.
