    The Mosque is actually quite small and relatively plain, given Dubai's wealth it was not as grand as I was expecting but personally I think that is a good thing. I was advised that there is only one 1...  more »

    We were on a walking tour of the Jumeirah Mosque, and it was really interesting and instructive. Under the motto: "open Doors to a open mind" tells the-without being judgemental or preaching-about Islam. They tell about the five pillars of Islam and demonstrates how the prayer is practiced. You get really a lot to know, which perhaps contributes to that afterwards a little better understand what Islam is all about. There is the opportunity to ask questions afterwards. All are in English and they speak really good English.

    The only Mosque open to non Muslims. The admission was only 20 UAD. The registration starts at 9h30. Free Emirati food and Arabic coffee provided before and after the tour. The tour was educational as well as inspirational. They are there for better understanding of a different culture. Easily accessible by bus. The tour is approx. 90 minutes with a Q&A session.

    We joined the cultural tour of Jumeirah Mosque, starting with a light Arabic breakfast with tea and coffee. We were then guided through many aspects of the Islamic faith, starting with the ablution ritual which is undertaken before prayer. We were then taken into the mosque where the dome, minarets and call to prayer were explained. Then our guide spoke to us about Ramadan, the pilgrimage to Mecca and the five pillars of Islam. This was then followed by a Q&A session where we were invited to ask anything at all, with no question being deemed silly or taboo. Many questions were asked which were all answered openly, honestly and with good humour. It was a fantastic experience, interesting, enlightening and very enjoyable and I highly recommend all visitors to Dubai to take the time to visit the mosque and enjoy this wonderful tour.

    The Jumeirah Mosque itself is a very beautiful building. The inside of the mosque is even more spectacular! The people at the mosque are very friendly and helpful. They are willing to answer all your questions, no matter how weird they might sound! It is definitely worth a visit!

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
