The area
Neighbourhood: 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 neighbourhoods, 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.

    So interesting!
    Very informative and interesting visit. The guide was so knowledgeable and kind. He answered all the questions and gave us the time to appreciate our surroundings. Great insight in the history of the mosque and the Islamic prayers. You can go to the shop also and explore further the culture and take part in workshops. A must in my opinion

    Must do in Dubai
    Superb. The experience as a whole. Very informative - the ticket include museum and photo exhibition, coffee or tee and sweets. You can try their pool like game when you wait. The girls also had a good time.

    Open Doors, Open Minds. Truly worthwhile!
    A visit to this mosque and participation in the program allows for learning about a different culture/religion. We had the ability to ask questions in a “safe space” without fear of saying or seeing the wrong thing. I highly recommend participating. A great way we started our visit to Dubai!

    Fantastic Visit
    Well worth a visit. Beautiful building and incredibly informative. You are made to feel so incredibly welcome, everyone is approachable and keen to share their beliefs with you. The tour guide we have was wonderful and tan the tour in a really light hearted way. Loved seeing the women’s prayer room filled with toys - it’s a living, breathing place of worship. Not stuffy at all. Thoroughly recommend.

    Jumeirah mosque visit
    Great, informative and friendly tour. Food from the buffet was lovely way to start the tour. Tour guide was really calm and friendly , used lots of life situations and funny stories that were taken really well by public. Falcon photo and the henna tattoo is a sweet cherry at the top of the cake. Thank you for this great experience , hope to come back soon.

    Beautiful mosque and kind people
    This was a great experience. We were welcomed with open arms. We got received with local sweets and could walk around a gallery and the museum part. After this we went inside the mosque. This mosque is beautiful decorated and was very calming. Our guide told us a lot about Islam and the mosque with pride. You can see how much he cares for the mosque. We were encouraged to ask as many questions as we could think of, and i did. This was an amazing experience and we were so happy that we saw another part of Dubai as well.

    A true gift
    The whole experience was mesmerizing. The staff was very kind and provided us with extensive information on Islam's rituals, story and habits. I would strongly recommend the attraction to truly understand and experience an introduction to this faith, providing a respectful approach towards intercultural dialogue and coexistence.

    Mosque visit in Dubai
    This was a very interesting program introducing us to the Muslim faith. Our guide was very engaging and answered our questions well. Inside the mosque, the echo sometimes made it difficult to understand or hear everything he was saying.

    Don't miss this beautiful mosque!
    This is a can’t miss attraction in Dubai. For less than $10 US, you can tour a beautiful mosque, experience Arabic coffee and have a beautiful henna tattoo. My tour guide was friendly, welcoming and knowledge. It was one of my Dubai highlights.

Our family if three children (11,9 and 4) for the 10:00 tour. The guide was superb, giving a really educational and interesting tour that captivated the young and old. Highly recommend, especially for a family to show them a different culture.

Hi,
Had heard about Jumeirah Mosque in Dubai & wanted to visit because it is the only mosque in Dubai which is open to non-muslims. Went there on a weekday for a guided tour which lasted about 75 minutes. The entry fees were about 40 AED in which one is given some light refreshments & some tea (pix attached). In case, if you are wearing shorts then, a Kandora (Islamic dress) is given for male to cover him before entering the place. Our guide told us about the five pillars of Islam & other things before we went inside the place where there would be Q&As. One of the person in the mosque showed us how to pray. Overall, its a nice place to visit. Nothing spectacular.

Beautiful mosque. Another wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in this beautiful culture. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave a demonstration of the prayer which I loved.

Before visiting this mosque be aware that it is not by any means a historic building, having been constructed in the 1970's. It is also not clear to me to what extent it is a functioning mosque at all in terms of holding prayers for Muslims. Working mosques in Dubai generally do not permit entry to tourists. Jumeirah Mosque seems to be more of a "showroom" for non-Muslims who have never been inside a mosque before. They are serving food and drink in the building next door during Ramadan so clearly it is not a very serious place when it comes to Islam. The "tour" is more of a lecture on the principles of Islam delivered to a sitting audience. While the mosque is pretty enough it is relatively small and will not impress anyone who has seen the famous and historic mosques of Turkey, for example. Wear shorts so that they give you a kandura to wear because that will make your photos more Instagrammable.

We had a wonderful experience on the tour. Our guide Ahmed was very educational and answered everyone's questions. It really highlighted how many things we all have in common across all cultures. I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Dubai, even if they only have a few days here. We had read that we needed to arrive 30 minutes early but we only arrived 10 minutes early for the 2 PM session and we're still able to join without a problem.

I thoroughly recommend this tour. We were made to feel very welcome, with nibbles and Arabic coffee available on arrival. I also had a lovely lady give me a henna tattoo and we were able to hold a falcon! Then when the tour commenced our tour guide was really friendly, clear and taught us a lot about Islam. We could ask as many questions as we wanted, and heard all about the five pillars, as well as what happens during Jummah prayer. Thank you!
