The Jumeirah Mosque is a must see since it is a land mark of Dubai. It is not the largest mosque in the UAE, yet it is one of the few open to non-Muslims. The Visit Programme is hosted by The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. The visit itself takes about an hour for a small fee. Mosque visitors get the chance to observe the prayer and learn more about the customs of worship and ask any questions under the banner program "Open doors. Open minds." Jumeirah Mosque showcases the medieval Fatimid architecture in its stone construction. Visit tours are offered daily accept Friday and begin at 10am sharp. No pre-registration is required. Plan to arrive at 9:30am for registration and enjoy Emirati snacks and hot beverages. Doors will close at 10:05am and will reopen at 11:15am. There is only one guided tour daily. Entry fee is 20AED per person while children under 12 free. The Mosque grounds are open all day, and you may view the Jumeirah Mosque's beautiful architecture from the outside any day of the week. Located at the end of Jumeirah Beach Road, the closest Metro stop is Al Jafiliya. From there you can take a short taxi ride to the mosque or transfer to C10 RTA bus. Modest dress is advisable, however national attire can be borrowed at the door.

We basically went to see the mosque from the architectural/artistic point of view. In this sense, it's nothing special. Instead of a tour, we were sat down and told all about Islam. The 'Pro Art' gallery across the road is a lot more interesting.

Thank you to the Imam for his beautiful melodic recitals of the Quran. A truly wonderful experience to pray behind him.

The mosque is nice in sunset hours when the building glows the Taj Mahal style. Beautiful architecture, but I thought it would be bigger.

We read Friday Jumma prayers here. Mosque is beautiful from the outside and more so from the inside! What was great to see was the rich locals reading side by side with the much poorer construction workers!

We missed the tour. There is only one per day (a few guide books indicate that there are multiple tours) and you cannot go inside if you are not on the tour. It's quite small from the outside. The mosque in Abu Dhabi is much more impressive.

Dressed according to code but was still not enough as when wind blew my ankles were exposed. Before this it was my pink cardigan covering my shoulders and arms that caused offence as it apparently exposed my skin. It was a UK winter Cardigan and was not transparent. Was given a traditional dress but was too short so eventually gave... More

For non-Muslims the perfect way to learn some of the essentials of the religion. Almost every day there's a tour @10am. Be there 15min earlier and when you are by car make sure you have AED 4,- in coins with you (for 2hour parking). The tour guide of the mosque speaks good English and is open for any questions.

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
Jumeirah
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.
