The Muslim Council of Britain is organising a national Visit My Mosque day on Sunday 1st February 2015, where British mosques will open their doors to the general public.
Mosques will be sharing tea and cakes alongside an insight into the day-to-day goings on of a busy Muslim centre of worship.
Members of the community are there to get to know one another better and some may be on hand to answer questions about Muslims and Islam where this is possible. Local mosques will also be inviting inter-faith leaders as well, and all will be invited to come together to demonstrate unity and solidarity during what has been a tense time for faith communities.
Visit My Mosque day is part of a national initiative by Muslims to reach out to fellow Britons following tensions around terrorism. Many mosques have open door policies, and many have special set days to invite the local community around them. We celebrate these existing schemes as well. This is a pilot national event and we hope, based on feedback, to be repeating it again later in the year.
