“A jewel in the middle of Beirut.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

It's the largest mosque in Lebanon and maybe in the region. An architectural jewel. Contains the biggest crystal chandelier. Nice carpets. The staff serving the mosque is very well organized. Always clean even in the toilets. A great air conditioning system. Praying there is really joyful and comfortable.

“Holy Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

As a Prayer or just a Visitor.. you will wonder of the design of this holy place.. Feel in peace & enjoy the architecture of this mosque.. The blue-domed mosque has an Ottoman inspiration, copying the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul

“Beautiful and Welcoming Mosque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Very peaceful and serene stepping inside the mosque. The biggest chandeliers I've ever seen - couldn't help but think of the Only Fools and Horses sketch! The thing I love about going into a mosque compared to going in to a church.... if I was to lie down on the floor of a church they would think I was mad and kick me out. Not in Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque they don't!! Very very tranquil place to be and gather one's thoughts.

“A modern mosque but that's all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

Recently built mosque worth having a quick look. More interesting is taking a picture of the mosque outside with the churches either side very interesting or make a video with church bells ringing and call to prayer together!
