Muhaisnah lies in the northeastern region of Dubai. It is one of the few localities that is established close to the Dubai-Sharjah border. Muhaisnah is in proximity to industrial developments such as Al Qusais Industrial Area in Dubai and the Industrial Area in Sharjah.
The neighbourhood is popular among working professionals and small families who live in apartment complexes while larger families choose to reside in the villa communities. One of the separate sub-communities of the area is Muhaisnah 2. It consists of staff accommodation for the labours due to the nearby industrial areas.
