  • In the entrance hall are large plates with the whole narrative about Islam-originally and history and value basis. It takes a stand on all the major issues on the boards, also in English. Comparing Christianity with Islam and this is extremely interesting. I was positively surprised of the stunning setting with many pictures. Worth a look.

  • In front of the Souq. Because the opening I could see him just outside. The spiral line of the tower is really original and from the top you can see the coast with its buildings

  • before going in the souq waqif, intrigued us this mosque from the spiral minaret ... very nice lit at night, right across the skyline. in fact, the mosque is very small, while very interesting is the Museum on the ground floor, with color panels that illustrate the fundamental features of Islam, suitable for all ages. very useful.

  • 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.
