This is a great short tour, with very helpful guides. The tour itself is about 2 hours long and it is well worth the visit. The Q&A session is extremely interesting, where our guide was very educational. Definitely go here if your visiting Dubai.

Not an enormous mosque, but we greatly enjoyed the lecture, then Q & A from an Arab- American Islamic woman. She was an excellent speaker, and answered questions from the audience in a matter-of-fact, nonjudgmental fashion.

Before arriving to Dubai, we were told that there wouldn't be a chance to visit the mosque. The more we were surprised by finding out that there is actually one organisation (Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Centre for Cultural Understanding), which is organising tour to the mosque. The person who led the tour was brilliant, delivering lecture about Islam, similarities with... More

The mosque is nice and the tour is informative and enjoyable. After the tour, do not miss visiting the nearby Majles cafe that serves camel milk; it is tasty and light.

Very good experience. Its worth a visit for the half hour session provided by the guide on Muslim and the cultural background. It also solves the curiosity of whats inside a mosque and gives you a entire new perspective to Islamic religion. I would also suggest to pickup a copy of the Islam & Muslim kept on the entrance of... More

I cannot say enough about what a delightful and insightful tour this was. Well run and an easy wait to get in. The Islamic religion is explained by a person who is truly interested in people understanding the peaceful religion. There were people in the tour that tried to create controversy, but it was handled smoothly and with kindness. I... More

I enjoyed my trip to the Mosque, it was very informative and interesting. The lady who shared the facts about being a Muslim, was genuine, believable and certain convinced me. It was quite refreshing to know the information straight from the horses mouth so to speak. The mosque itself was amazing and satisfied my curiosity as to both what was... More

This is the first time visiting a local heritage attraction in Dubai, and this was a great experience. The presenters were fantastic and spoke very clear English. The tour/information session provided very insightful information for the Islamic religion and they were very open and welcoming for any questions. The mosque itself was quite an amazing building. Would highly recommend to... More

This was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone. The guides explained the basic pillars of Islam and demonstrated prayers. I learnt a lot in just an hour. It's well worth the 10Dh entrance fee.

The mosque is the only place in Dubai where you can access a mosque, take photos and ask all the questions you want. The tour or entry starts at 10am all days except the hold day of Friday. You meet in the hall next door to the mosque. I had a coffee with camel milk that was an experience. There... More
