The experience of praying in a mosque brings about much peace and solace to worshippers. While it is most common for males to be praying at mosques due to religious teachings, we understand that the ladies of the city also seek the aura and serenity of praying in a mosque

The ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) team is here with a comprehensive guide to mosques around the city (in alphabetical order) to help locate the nearest one to you.

We bring to you a list of a few mosques that are centrally located and easily accessible, with spacious interiors for female worshippers and some of which also offer Quran classes or Islamic lectures for women. The intricate Islamic architecture and grandeur of these mosques also add to the experience.

Tips for non-worshippers who would like to visit any of the listed mosques:

  • Dress modestly and ensure your hair is covered with a shawl.
  • Remove footwear at designated areas.
  • Visit with clean self-hygiene and when free from the monthly cycle.
