Local Mosques Open Their Doors to Promote Understanding of Faith

Sharing is caring!

Eighteen mosques across Massachusetts held an Open Mosque Day over the weekend of the 1st April to give the public a chance to meet their Muslim neighbors.

On Sunday 2nd April, attendees had the chance to tour a mosque, hear a brief introduction to Islam and witness a Muslim prayer service.

Wafaa Wahabi of the American Islamic Center in Everett said that during a time of misunderstanding about Islam, Muslims hope to show the communities they live in that they “live, pray and dream just like anyone else.”

Participating mosques include: the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center in Boston, the Islamic Society of Greater Lowell in Chelmsford, Masjid Al-Ehsan in Dartmouth and the Islamic Society of Greater Haverhill.

Mosques in Worcester and Chelsea plan to hold separate open days in May.
