Jumeirah Mosque

So, you have decided to make the trip to Dubai, and you want to know the dress code for the Jumeirah Mosque before you go.

You’re not the only one looking for Dubai Jumeirah mosque dress guide. In this post, I will share some guidelines about the dress code for Jumeirah mosque as well as the best way to get to the mosque.

A renowned landmark in Dubai, Jumeirah Mosque is one of the largest and most photographed mosques in the world. It is an iconic mosque that attracts hundreds of visitors daily due to its innovative interior design and beauty. The mosque is located on Jumeirah Beach Road, Jumeirah 1 area which is itself a bustling area because of its famous beach.

This mosque is different from most other mosques in the city in the sense that it welcomes tourists of all religions and for that reason it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Dubai. You can visit it anytime. The best part is that you don’t need a special permit to enter Jumeirah Mosque.

However, since this is an Islamic destination, like other religious places, the Dubai culture department has set some rules you MUST abide by to avoid trouble. The rules are pretty straightforward and simple to follow—no racism, no discrimination based on race, and no time limit at all. You can visit this mosque as long as you follow the authority’s rules.

Jumeirah Mosque Dress Code

Here is the Jumeirah Mosque dress code for males & females.

  • Male

Men are required to cover their knees and shoulders. Men cannot wear shorts or skirts above the ankle. Further, you should wear a loose dress, not a tight dress. If you have no such dress, the staff of the mosque will give it to you for the purpose of visiting.

  • Female

There is one main difference between the dress code for men and women, and that is the headscarf. Women who wish to enter the mosque are required to wear headscarves and cover their entire heads before entering. However, a veil will be provided upon entry.

How to Go to Jumeirah Mosque by Metro?

Unfortunately, there is no metro station within walking distance. The mosque is located on the Jumeirah road in Jumeirah 1 close to a beach which is on the Jumeirah road. As far as Metro stations go, the nearest one would be Al Jafiliya metro station, which is also quite a distance away. I would suggest you get to Al Jafiliya metro station by metro and book a taxi from there to get to Jumeirah Mosque and save money.

Tip: Most tour operators include the Jumeirah Mosque in their Dubai city itinerary. So, you can book a Dubai city tour to take you there.
