  • This is one of the most beautiful mosques in Lebanon. What I like is its architecture and its peaceful atmosphere. What I don't like is that sometimes the carpets smell and the women's toilet is not always clean.
  • During my week in Beirut, I visited the mosque a few times as it is truly beautiful inside and I had lovely encounters with worshippers who would approach me and ask about my reasons for visiting the mosque and Lebanon. The chandeliers and painted ceiling are masterpieces and it’s a quiet, comfortable sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Beirut.
  • Gorgeous mosque. The architecture is incredible and it is right next to an Orthodox Church. I heard the Muslim call to prayer and the church bells ringing simultaneously at the sunset and it was an experience I’ll never forget that few countries have - Lebanon being one of them.
  • The mosque is brilliant, located next to a church where one can hear both the bells and Azan at the same time over sunset. The mosque is open for tourists and the gatekeeper is very friendly, smiling and would help you explaining some details about the architecture of the site. It is open for tourists even while prayer times and they would offer head scarfs for women and some blankets for a mosque-friendly 'suitable wear' for them to enter. They would help you take pictures. I'd recommend Lebanese and tourists alike to have a quick visit and enjoy the architecture and spiritual experience.
  • بيت الله للصلاة في وسط بيروت. That's Lebanon's grand mosque, it doesn't matter for us if it is huge or small, the most important thing is to feel peaceful while performing our prayers inside. Thanks for all the people who visited that place and gave their good opinion about. Never hesitate to check about Islam, it is a great religion.
