  • 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.
