    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.

    Jumeirah Mosque

    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.

    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.

    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.
