  • Fatih of mosques in Bahrain and religious facilities and superb instruction. It has a chapel for the women and nice women are allowed to attend Friday prayers and.. I advise everyone who visited Bahrain on Friday to escort his family with him to attend a prayer and a sermon for the orator Friday chose important topics for everyone.

  • Beautiful structure. The tour guide was so informative. After the tour you can collect books for free. So far the best mosque I have seen so far
  • Peaceful, spiritual and eye - opening. You should be modestly dressed to be allowed in. Then they will give women abayas to wear. Men wearing shorts will be given thaubs. Tours are free for all. Open from 9 to 4. Closed on Friday.
  • The tour is great and very informative. I have been twice and both guides amazed me by the level of detail.
  • Beautiful and biggest mosque in Kingdom of Bahrain, Must visit. It is open for visit on all days except Fridays. You can have a guided tour of mosque, library and surroundings. Beautiful architecture in and out. Guided tour is free of charge.
  • A well known Bahrain mosque for a tourist to learn about Islam
