The mosque itself is tiny, just one medium sized room albeit extravagantly decorated and the tour consisted of us sitting in this room while the guide explained aspects of the building and the Islamic religion. The guide explained the 5 pillars of Islam, the dress code, the act of prayer and the duties of the Imam and the muezzin. So... More

This was a trip highlight. The mosque itself is new so it doesn't have the charm of being old. The reason to attend is the presentation done each day at 10:45. It's a wonderful introduction to the faith and customs of Islam and an open forum for asking questions. You will need to remove shoes and cover your head, but... More

Well worth a visit to see this beautiful mosque. Free entry and free tours but allow ample time before tour times as it takes a while to clear security and get burkha which is provide free but you need photo I.D. which is kept as deposit and returned when handing back Burkha. Men also need knees covered and several reused... More

Jumeirah Mosque is not particularly big, especially if you already have visited Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. It is nevertheless quite impressive, as well as a good exponent of Emiriate’s Islamic tradition. If you want to access the building you should be aware of avoiding praying hours, check with your local guide for assuring the best time to visit. Next to... More

I am a non-muslim and my perspective about the religion changed towards more positive. I am glad that I was a part of their educational session. Also wore the local attire which was fun.

Lovely mosque open to the public - We went on a whim and managed to get in at the end of a tour and have a quick look around. The tour guides are very informative and very approachable to ask questions which we saw lots of people doing. A great opportunity for people to be informed about the practicalities of... More

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.
