    Im trying to find a lodge here for many years and tried to inquire through mail in different countries but i end up disappointed. I've been in the country for 4 years. I also tried to ask a member in my home country (Philippines) but they advise me to try it here in the UAE. Thanks sir

    There are lodges closer to you than the Philippines but there is probably your best option.

    What about the Rotary, aren't they going to guide us for a lodge? They held a meeting in Grand Hayatt of Dubai by 20 June 2013, if there is going to be another meeting we will have the chance to find a lodge

    Dear Brethren,

    As most of you might be aware, Regular Freemasonry is not available in most Arab countries.
    However in Jordan, you will find Jordan Lodge operating under the GL of Scotland, and soon Wisdom Lodge as well.

    The only Other Arab country that has a thriving Masonic life is Lebanon.

    In Lebanon there are 3 different Regular Constitutions operating.

    The District Grand Lodge of Lebanon, chartered by the Grand Lodge of Scotland which has 7 Lodges operating under it. 3 of which are in Beirut.

    The District Grand Lodge of Syria Lebanon under the Grand Lodge of New York which has 11 lodges operating.

    And Lodge Phoenix 1001 operating directly under the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia FAAM also in Beirut.

    You are all welcome to visit but it is highly recommended to communicate through the proper channels of Grand Secretaries and have your documentation available.

    Good day to everyone. Surfing internet regarding freemasonry in the UAE I`ve found following article:
    Dubai, United Arab Emirates. According to an information received on February 28 (declassified today by the Secretariat General) from New York, HRH Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Premier and Vicepresident, absolute Sovereign of Dubai) approved the establishment of a Masonic Lodge in Dubai. The information was not confirmed by this time.
    Source http://masonicpressagency.blogspot.ae/2012/03/freemasonry-became-legal-in-united-arab.html
    Does anyone has any idea about it?

    I remember a lot of praise for Dubai a few years ago for authorizing a lodge. As an American my reaction was more like "A lodge needs permission?" but one step at a time and that was a good step. No idea what GL has chartered any lodge there yet.

    One of our EAs works in Abu Dhabi. When he visited us a couple weeks back, he told us that no lodge had been officially chartered yet.

    There's a small Freemason discussion and study group (not a lodge) that regularly meets at an Al Shahama coffee shop, in Abu Dhabi. These brothers are mostly Americans, all in good standing with various lodges in their country. They are great guys . They would welcome any Mason from any country to participate.
