This is an ideal way to arrange a visit to the State Grand Mosque.
The staff are English speaking and extremely helpful, and will contact a guide at the mosque who will take you on a conducted tour. They will explain etiquette, dress requirements and everything needed for a pleasant visit. You can get literature which explains the Quran and the Islamic faith.
The building is easily recognisable on the Corniche - opposite the Dow Harbour, on the edge of the Souq Wakif.
The mosque is a 20 - 30 QR taxi ride away.

We were met at the center by a very interesting guide that gave us an insightful session on Islam. He talked about their history and culture. We all felt very welcomed. As the lecture went on, they took groups of a handful of women to a dressing room to put on the traditional dress.

Then we into the mosque to continue the discussion.

This cultural/religious site sits in the middle of Doha next door to the market and near the corniche. I did not visit the inside due to my time restriction but did walk around the outside to have a look at its fairly interesting design.
