Dubai - Jumeirah Mosque

A city of mosques, decreed by the Sheik (that's His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai) not to be more than 500 meters apart, calling the faithful to prayer five times a day. Usually, non-Muslims are not allowed to enter mosques in Dubai; however, you may enter the Jumeirah Mosque if you are part of an organized tour. To encourage expatriates and non-Muslims to know more about Dubai's Islamic heritage, Arabic culture and religious practices, The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding organizes tours that gives visitors a chance to view the city’s most magnificent mosque up close.
