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

This 90 minute presentation of the key aspects of Islam held within the Jumeira Mosque is outstanding and should not be missed if you are in Dubai. From the moment we arrived we were treated with kindness and care. Waiting for the tour to start in the cool and peaceful Majilis cafe (adjoining the Mosque) was a great experience in... More

This is a good chance to have an insight of Muslim culture and rites. Book your tour in advance and be sure of reach the place early in the morning.

A smallish mosque, but a great tour - no reservations required, just turn up at the main entrance by 9.30am - and a fascinating insight into islam, comparisons with other religions, and the muslim way of life in an interesting and non confrontational manner. The question and answer session was particularly interesting as many quite potentially difficult questions were answered... More

The Jumeirah Mosque itself is tucked away in a residential area of Jumeirah in Dubai, somewhat removed from the glitz and glamour of the city. It is a modern medium sized mosque done in the classic Islamic style, so from an architecture point of view it is pleasant, but nothing special. This mosque is the only one in the UAE... More

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.
