  • We signed up for the tour at 10:30am. Positive experience learning from the presenter on the basics of Islam with Q&A. The mosque/site itself is not that special, not much for good photo-taking...

  • Jumeirah Mosque is a mosque that was built in the 70s by Sheikh Rashid Al Maktoum one of the UAE's founding fathers. This mosque is open for the 5 prayers of the day for Muslims to attend the group prayer but as all mosques of Dubai the prayer hall is closed outside prayer times (&open for mosque visits, see below for more info.) The ladies section is clean and tidy ! ---- This mosque's uniqueness is in the guided tour titled Mosque Visit which started over 20 years ago by the Centre for Cultural Understanding. Visitors get to explore the mosque architecture. And they get a chance to learn about the religion of Islam. What's special about this visit is also the open mindedness of the guides who will listen to ALL questions about the religion without passing any judgement! Questions cover not only the religion of Islam but also the Emirati culture. One question I heard from the guests was "why Muslim women wear black ?". When I first visited the mosque I was an intern, and as a Muslim Emirati woman, it was an I opening experience and it encouraged me to be more open and welling to share my culture with the world. Oh & the experience doesn't need any reservation! Everyday except Friday. Twice a day at 10 am and 2 pm. The rate is 35 AED (keep in mind that this is for a non-profit organization). People of determination are free of charge. It's good to keep in mind that the mosque visits are usually open even during public holidays. ---- For me I scored it 4/5 because I think it can be better. Maybe more clarity for tourists and worshipers with signs outside the mosque as I think many are confused in the reviews section. And more light indoors would be nice.
  • One of the most famous Mosques in Dubai with a beautiful architectural design. The Mosque is opened for tourists to visit.
