Celebrity Visit


Guess who requested a private tour of the Jumeriah Mosque?  When Beyonce performed at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, she contacted the Sheikh Mohammed Centre  for a private visit.  Although she seems larger than life on stage, she was quite unexpectedly friendly, gracious and in awe at the beauty of the Jumeriah Mosque. She arrived in traditional Emirati abaya, and we helped her wrap her shayla before she entered the mosque.  During her tour she had some fun donning the burgha worn by Emirati bedouin women.
