Visit my mosque, a nationwide initiative where people are invited to look around the mosque and be treated to hot food and snacks.
“The annual Mosque Open Day, which was observed on February 18th, 2018, saw the doors of Hockwellring Masjid open to visitors of all beliefs. This year, over 200 mosques across the country participated in the event as part of the national theme “Open Doors, Open Mosques, Open Communities.”
The Hockwellring Masjid was beautifully decorated with displays showcasing various aspects of Islamic beliefs, providing visitors with a glimpse into the culture and traditions of the Islamic community. Throughout the day, families and children stopped by to tour the mosque and attend informative presentations, including “What is Islam?” at 1:30 pm, “Culture and Society” at 3:00 pm, and “Why I Became a Muslim?” at 4:30 pm.
In addition to the educational aspect of the day, guests were also treated to traditional Islamic cuisine and refreshments, including tea and coffee.
