Jumeirah Mosque, Dubai
The Jumeirah Mosque is the largest and most beautiful mosque in Dubai, the only one in the city that everyone can enter, regardless of religion, gender or age.

Creation History


For Muslims, mosques are the second home where they spend hours in prayer, mourning their loved ones, or talking to Allah searching answers for the eternal questions of being. Therefore, more than 100 years ago the Arab Sheikh Rashid ibn Saeed Al Maktoum decided that any believer should travel more than one kilometer to the nearest mosque.
