    • The initiative encourages mosques to hold open days to welcome neighbors of all faiths
    • The Muslim Council of Britain facilitates the national initiative, which began in 2015.

    Believing that opening doors equals building bridges, hundreds of mosques across the UK will open their doors to visitors next month, welcoming their neighbors from all faiths and none to help them understand the Islamic faith.

    The event, planned for 23-24 September 2023, will see over 250 mosques across the UK joining the initiative.

    ā€œVisit My Mosque Day is a national initiative facilitated by the Muslim Council of Britain encouraging 250+ mosques across the UK to hold open days to welcome in their neighbors from all faiths and none and build bridges across communities,ā€ the Muslim Council of Britain wrote in a statement.

    Mosques in the UK have been holding open days for their local communities for decades.

    The national initiative #VisitMyMosque kicked off in February 2015, with about 20 mosques participating.

    Held under the auspices of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), the initiative grew to over 250 mosques last year.

    Now, MPs and politicians take part in the initiative, including the PM, the Leader of the Opposition, and London Mayor.
