The first two of over 12 #VisitMyMosque Day training workshop this year were successfully delivered today in Nottingham and Leicester!
The sessions covered a wide range of aspects on how to run a successful mosque open day, from getting your mosque’s congregation involved, to publicising the event, to on-the-day considerations.
The importance of community cohesion building on the exemplar of the Prophetic mosque in the multi-religious city of Medina was discussed too and how such a vision can be implemented in Britain today by mosque leaders and volunteers across the UK. Further resources and templates provided by the MCB to assist event organisers with running an open day are also available online at www.visitmymosque.org/resources
Some feedback from attendees:
“Open days for our mosque’s neighbours is part of the Sunnah (tradition) of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and we need even more of these programmes to help build bridges between Muslim communities and wider British society.” Fadi, Nottingham
“I really enjoyed the discussion point sessions in the workshop – it helped us think through the issues and has given me more ideas for what we can do to make my mosque’s mosque open day better on 3rd March 2019 insha’Allah,” Nabeela, Leicester
Over 12 training workshops are being held across the UK throughout January and February 2019 in Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, London, Cardiff, Glasgow, Slough, Sheffield and Luton! Limited spaces are available, so book your place online now at:
