About
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.

The area
Address
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.

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, though.

The mosque was just 10 minutes by walk from our hotel so it was the obvious target to visit. You get a warm welcome and can wait in comfortable air conditioned room until the guided tour starts. If you don't have appropriate dress, they borrow you one. The guide takes the group into mosque and there's about 30 minutes presentation of Mosque history and brief introduction to 5 pillars of Islam which is quite interesting. Included short example of prayer. The version of Islam presented there is the most liberal and peaceful you can get. Then about 15 minutes of questions & answers. I took kids with me and my teenager son found it interesting too. Cost for adult 35 AED, children free. Overall interesting experience and chance to learn something new.

The mosque tour was a highlight of our Dubai stay. Achmed was an excellent guide and made sure that there were no questions unanswered. They have two tours per day (except Friday) at 10am and 2pm.

I wish I would have found out earlier, then I would have done the bus tour around Dubai as well.

We were very unfortunate: our guide was not good. He introduced himself saying that he xas a real estate agent and was a volunteer. We didn't learn a thing, not about the building, not about islam... a pity because I read some of the guides are superb...

Great opportunity to learn about the 5 pillars of Islam. Very informative and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. This was a great experience for a small fee. You must dress appropriately because it’s a holy place. They will loan you clothing if your not. Overall great experience and delicious refreshments.

What an incredible place and a must-do visit in Dubai.

Latifa gave such an interesting presentation on the history of both the mosque itself, and of Islam and day-to-day religious practice in Dubai with a really great Q&A session.

My advice would be to stay behind in the mosque after the talk is finished and most people have left just to enjoy the beauty of the building itself. I’d have loved to speak to Latifa myself but she was much in demand and had several people waiting to talk to her!

The whole idea of the programme at the Jumeirah Mosque is to promote cultural understanding, and I think the team are doing an absolutely amazing job.

It was a lovely surprise to see the most gorgeous bird of prey in the building too, and to have had the opportunity to hold him.

For the very small entry fee for the tour, you get so much more in terms of the experience. I had read the website previously and made sure I wore appropriate clothing and had a headscarf, but for those who didn’t (including men who had shorts above the knee) traditional dress was provided to enable them to come into the mosque.

Tours are now at 10am AND 2pm so if you miss the first one you have a second opportunity. Make sure you check the website before you go.

I am so glad we went to the Jumeirah Mosque - it definitely exceeded expectations. We were in a rental car and just parked on the street nearby. There was about an hour long presentation by Tracy/Fatima (sorry this isn't a great picture, she is in the black abaya). She spoke about an "insider" view of being Muslim, about the 5 pillars of Islam, and her colleague Mohammad demonstrated a typical prayer series. This is the only mosque in Dubai that allows non-Muslims to enter. As a new arrival in the Middle East, it was a great introduction to the religion and culture. And while we were waiting there was a falcon making the rounds that you could hold on your fist. Definitely recommend!

The biggest and oldest mosque in Jumeirah. Now open to non Muslims for guided tours. A great place to learn about the Arab culture and traditions. Women must be fully covered including your head. Men should wear trousers no shorts allowed.
Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. Open minds Open doors.
