We had the pleasure of being blessed with guided tour of the holy place with Saeed as our conductor. His narrative and revelations on the design, workmanship and holy conduct in the mosque made this visit even more beautiful. Blessed to have visited this monument

A beautiful marvel of architecture; however, stupid bureaucratic intolerant rules. You can only take pics in designated areas and if you are 1 inch outside of that designated area, you are scolded even if there is not a crowd to move along. I get the idea of having designated spots to keep the crowds moving, but we were there with no crowds and we’re still scolded and stopped several times even when just a few inches outside of a photo pic zone. Really silly stupid intolerant rules left to people incapable of using any discretion. Took a selfie and put my arm around my wife and was scolded for “hugging”. Ridiculous.
“Pathway to Tolerance” read the signs leading to the mosque. First train your people to use discretion.

We visited just before dusk and saw the Mosque by day and night. It is an amazing place of worship and architecture. We undertook a public tour led by Zayed who was very informative and friendly.
Application to visit process is very easy and it is free of charge.

Wow wow wow wow. Goosebumps. I’ve been to a lot of world monuments and this is definitely one of the most surprising and spectacular buildings I’ve ever seen. Every bit as gobsmacking as the Taj. The highlight was my free tour of the mosque after sunset when all the lights came on (bonus that you’re allowed to take photos almost anywhere on the tour). The tour guide Khawla was incredible—super friendly and full of insight, she illuminated a lot of interesting details that will make you appreciate the mosque even more. Wish I had an extra day to go back. Do not miss it. Also thank you Khawla!

This is most impressive monument, of manny you can visit in Abu Dhabi. Mosque is beautifull inside and outside. We had luck to be inside in the time when public tour was planned, and we had great tour guide, Asma. We have learnd a lot about the design of the mosque and it history. Best time to visit is before dusk, when you can see Mosque in daytime and in 18h the lights are turn on so you can enjoy their magic.

Must visit place in Abu Dhabi. You will definitely enjoy the place in terms of architecture. But now it is not allowed to pray in the main hall during weekdays (except Friday)

8:00 PM tour with Aisha was exemplary. I recommend the evening tour as there were no crowds and our tour guide Aisha was excellent (knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and really made us feel welcomed). The photo opportunities at night during the crescent moon made for an extraordinary visit. Not to be missed!

The architecture and atmosphere calms the soul totally. The best way to visit is around sunset as the pics will be insane.
