This mosque is a favourite tourist stop in Dubai. It is one of the few mosques non-muslims can enter. Having been to the Blue Mosque this is not as impressive but still interesting. Can hold over a thousand people with large twin minarets, it is worth a visit.

Our visit to the mosque, while mostly a formality, actually proved very educational. The guide was open to real questions, and we learned that radicalism is NOT allowed by imams in the UAE. On Friday, they get a lecture topic of the week from the government, and imams who radicalize that or veer from the topic are fired. Maybe that... More

We went there to see a mosque from the inside and we didn't expect how it was. It was very beautyful and clean with a carpet covering all the floor, a very comfortable carpet I have to say. Then we get the explanation of the construction, the history of the islam religion and more things. It was a good visit... More

Did a tour at 10am as advertised. Very informative, interactive talk by an excellent guide. We learned lots about the true Muslim way of life. A very small fee is payable but well worth it. Wear suitable clothing to show respect, but garments for men and women will be provided free of charge if necessary. We travelled you by bus,... More

Also came across this Mosque as part of our coach tour - very beautiful and lots of photo opportunities around the gardens. The Mosque wasn't open to visitors the day were there but the grounds were enough. We were told that you could make an appointment to talk to someone inside the Mosque

What a beautiful building, Be respectful and cover your head, even though it is not strictly enforced. The building itself is beautiful with small garden as well. Remove your shoes as well and you will be well received. Check first as someimes it is not open to the public.

Great piece of architecture for those visiting. We did not go inside as it appeared to be closed so took some nice photos from the outside.

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.
