  • Beautiful yellow exterior on this mosque. Once in Beirut for sure a visit is a good idea despite the fact that inside of the mosque is not as brilliant as the outsides. What makes this mosque extra special is that it is located side by side to a church which is very telling of Lebanon.
  • One of the most beautiful mosque in the world! The house of God is always open to all of mankind!! Man/woman, kids/adults, all are welcome... Make sure to visit! Enter and make your prayer to God almighty..... A definite MUST, our obligation as a human being!!!
  • One of the beautiful mosque I've ever seen so far. Harmoniously blended with modern ottoman design located in Downtown Beirut.
  • Beautiful mosque, but the sheer size of it alone makes it worth a visit. Looks great on Friday nights when it iOS totally illuminated
  • Fantastic building from the outside, the interior is magnificent. The staff/people who belong to the mosque was really helpful - they gave the term "No problem" a face.
