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.

It was good to see this but its a mainly plain mosque entrance fee gives you a small drink and cakes. Guide was informative. But I am sure there are prettier and more ornate ones

This is not the most beautiful mosque i have visited but certainly the most educational tour. The delightful Najat explained clearly about the Muslim faith and there was a Q& A at the end.( excellent English) Demonstration of the daily prayers was included. Dont worry if you arrive minus scarf or cloaks ( Abaya) as they are provided. Men need... More

We visited this stunning mosque and were very impressed. We were given the opportunity to sample traditional snacks and drinks before being led into the mosque. It is stunningly beautiful!! We were given a talk by a British lady called Tracey. She explained, in a very entertaining way, the fundamentals of Islam, and gave us the opportunity to ask any... More

It was a shame in September 16 that the Mosque was being given an upgrade and we couldn't go in. It will be lovely when finished. In a great location

Went for Friday Jamuah prayers. The mosque itself isn't that big, thought it would've been more grand. The main hall was nice, cool and decorated well. A bit costly, around 60 AED to get to from Dubai Marina where we were staying and nothing much nearby so you'll need another taxi trip.

The Muslim lady who held the tour was very good. Fantastic English and made it easy to understand the basics of Muslim faith. She begs you to ask "any questions you may have" which gives us the chance to understand it better. You get to see someone demonstrate a prayer too. Go if you are open minded and not informed...

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.
