  • Very interesting and full of islamic culture and interesting things to learn about the Islamic culture 
  • Almost horrible... I thought there would be more information about Islamic culture but in fact, there was some propaganda posters down and that's all! I wanted to go to the bathroom (high level, in the part of women) and I discovered that there are courses, which made me give this note. Posters are poorly done, graphics intern, not airy, no real explanations but it reminds of flyers we offer sects! This is exactly the same. "I have the truth because in this text, you see that explains that"... There was no one. It was totally disappointing and the building is, like everything else, ugly. The dimensions between the base and the tower are bites... And as a woman, you can go anywhere!

  • There was just a hall whose walls were lined with information that is extremely comprehensive. Basically summarizes what Islam stands for and this is what is needed to dispel misconceptions of Islam. ...  more »

  • MashaAllah very nice place went for islamic lecture Alhamdulilah very good masjid
  • Had a wonderful experience here. I took one of their mosque tours with my nephew while he was visiting me in Doha. They answered any questions we had. They made us feel so very welcomed. To our delight and surprise they even provided us with a traditional dinner that was absolutely delicious.
  • The place is informative and nice ambience. Very closed to the old souqs and Souq Wakif. However, parking is a nightmare.
  • Excellent place for Islamic learning, very nice location and near to Souk Waqif - another nice cultural place.
  • If you are living in Qatar but not visited Fanar yet, then you could be unlucky. Free interactive sessions, Arabic learning and many more things available. If you have a tough question about Islam and you want to the precise answer, then this is the right place.
