    This mosque is open to visitors Thurs, Sun & i think Tues. Tour begins at 10am, and don't be late otherwise you will miss out. Cost is 10 dirhams. Women must wear a long skirt/loose fitting pants, long sleeve shirt (or shawl to cover the upper body), and something to cover your hair (again for ladies). The tour is an hour presentation on the basic teachings & unerstandings of the Islamic faith, cultural norms of Dubai and the gulf region. It is worth going as this is the only mosque in Dubai that allows non muslim visitors to visit inside. Definitely must visit when in Dubai.

    Every Thursdays and Sundays at 10:00 a.m., the Jumeirah Mosque is open for everybody for tours. Just be there before the time and pay 10 AED for registration. It is organised by The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. This is a non-profit organization that aims to remove the barriers between culttures especially for those living in the UAE. During the tour, there are representatives who explains about Islam including prayers and the pillars of Islam. They also talk about food, clothes, etc that is locally used in the UAE. This is a fun and educational tour. There is a dress code for ladies to be covered from head to foot and for men not to wear shorts. If you do not have any head cover with you or abaya, the center can lend one for you.

    The beautiful Jumeirah Mosque lies in the Jumeirah Beach area and is a typical example of Dubai mosque architecture. It is the only mosque in Dubai that allows non-Moslems to visit the interior. Make sure you dress conservatively when you enter (men shouldn't wear shorts and women should cover as much of their bodies as possible - a head scarf would be considered respectful).

    Dubai has many fine mosques. One of the largest and most beautiful, the Jumeirah Mosque, is a spectacular example of modern Islamic architecture. Built of stone in medieval Fatimid tradition, the mosque with its twin minarets and majestic dome is another of Dubai's landmarks.

    by fareleira Written Feb 24, 2005

    Jumeirah Mosque is the top mosque in Dubai and is the only open for tourists on Thursdays and Sundays.
    We were late for the tour but we took some photos from the outside while having lunch at Japengo restaurant just across the road.
    Great place for a photo!

    The Jumeirah Mosque

    The nicest one in Dubai, if you ask my opinion. The design is exactly what us, profanes in Islam religion, understand for a mosque and the decoration is absolyutely beautiful. It is a nice sight from the road, all white and shiny under the sun.

    Al Jumeirah--most photographed building in Dubai

    The Jumeirah mosque is the largest and perhaps the most beautiful house of worship in Dubai. While mosques in the UAE are generally not open to non-Muslims, it is possible to visit this mosque as part of a program to promote cultural understanding among Muslims and those of other faiths.

    Guided tours are offered by the Sheikh Mohammed Center for Cultural Understanding on Sunday and Thursday mornings at 10:00. It is advisable to pre-book so that you know where to meet your guide. You may, however, simply arrive at the mosque before the tour and join in. You will not be admitted if you arrive late. Dress conservatively: no bare legs or upper arms. Women must cover their hair.

    There are many beautiful mosques in Dubai. One of them is Jamiah Mosque of Bur Dubai district. Many locals come here to offer prayers. As per islamic rules shoes must be removed outside mosque. So during prayer timings one can see many shoes left on the stairs of this mosque.

  • Jumairah Mosque

    Jumairah Mosque is indeed the most beautiful mosque in Dubai. Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding organizes guided visits to this beautiful mosque on Sunday and Thursday mornings for non-muslim tourists. Visitors are expected to wear modest clothes and cover up themselves properly.

    This mosque is fine example of Islamic architecture. It has been built with cream colored stones. It especially looks lovely at night when all lights in the mosque are swtiched-on. Jumairah mosque is also featured on AED. 500 bank note.

    In short, visit to this beautiful mosque is must for every tourist who comes to Dubai.
