There should be more mosques; however it is also advisable that there should be multi storey mosques to accommodate more people. This will surly solve all problems.

Dubai definitely needs more mosques, especially in the New Dubai i.e Marina, JBR,Palm,Springs and many more places.. Jumeirah Beach Road is the only place which has 20 + mosques on a single road.

I live in JBR and there is no mosque around JBR, It's been more then one year, I haven't heared AZAAN in my area, we only listen AZAAN on TV. We go to Jabel Ali for Jumma Prayer.

There is only one mosque from Dubai College till Dubai Marina, how could one mosque accomodate the people of newly developed area. Dubai Gov should think seriously about this matter.

Yes, there is an urgent need for mosques in the country. Specially in Dubai where there are too much of new developments with out even a single mosque. I work in Lake Towers, it is expected to house more than 15000 ppl in a year and there is no mosque in this development.

I am a resident of International City and we have only one mosque in the area. I go to Karama for Friday prayers. We need more mosques to allow people to pray in peace.

Not only is there a shortage of mosques, but also of parking space around most mosques. This is not only problematic for mosque goers but also causes inconvenience to traffic in general as cars have to be parked on the roads at prayer times. We need more mosques and more parking spaces for existing mosques.

I live in Al Nahda area, near Al Mulla Plaza. There is no mosque in this area, but there is a big, open land so I wish authorities would utilise this to build a mosque.

I am working in Media City and there is no mosque in Media City or Internet City. For Friday prayers, I have to go Dubai Marina, where there is only a small prayer room.

We surely need more mosques, especially in new developments like the Dubai Marina, the Palm... I live in Al Qusais and it takes me a long drive to the nearest mosque.

There is an urgent need for more mosques, especially for people travelling from Jebel Ali to Dubai or Sharjah. There should be small mosques in each petrol stations. It is very hard to find mosques when you are travelling on Shaikh Zayed Road or the Emirates Road.

There is no need to build more; we have enough of them. However, I think it is time to encourage volunteers at the mosques to come and build communities and exchange knowledge with other worshippers.

I live in Deira, near the Baniyas Square and on Fridays many people have to sit on the streets due to lack of space inside the mosques. Although there is a very good number of mosques in my area, they are not big enough to accommodate everyone.

At the moment, in Dubai Marina, there is only a prayer room facility above Spinneys but this does not cater to the Muslim population.

There is an urgent need of mosques in the Dubai Marina area as there is a large Muslim community here.

I live in Jumeirah Beach Residence and I am very much disappointed by the lack of a mosque in the area. I have to travel far on Fridays to reach mosques in the Al Barsha area, and they are usually overcrowded.

With more buildings rising in Dubai, the population increases, but the mosque space remains the same. Perhaps more mosques should be built with every new development.

I live in Hor Al Anz and every Friday I see a lot of people perfoming salah on the road under the hot summer sun. Something should be done about this.
