The Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khatab mosque was established in 1986 and expanded in 2003. It was rebuilt in 2001 to its current form. I understand that the current design and architecture was inspired by the Blue Mosque of Istanbul.
It is only one of 3 mosque in UAE which give access to non Muslims and can accommodate over 2000 people at a time.
The mosque is located in the Safa 1 area of Jumeirah off Al Wasl Road.
