Overview and Purpose
“Open Mosque Day” is a unique event that provides the welcoming atmosphere needed to portray Islam in its true essence as a religion that teaches respect, compassion, and coexistence. Attendees receive a moving, first-hand experience of the true beauty of the faith, while breaking away from misinformation and misconceptions.
A National Initiative
This successful initiative has been held in communities across the nation in conjunction with ICNA’s First National Open Mosque Day Campaign, and with the expertise and guidance of our partners at GainPeace and WhyIslam.
We are eager to build lasting friendships from this initiative and further conversation with our fellow Americans.
Commemorating Recent Event
Alhamdulillah, on August 19 and 26 2017, ICNA SF Bay Area held ‘Open Mosque Day’ events at three local masajids: the Muslim Community Association, Masjid Al Huda, and Evergreen Islamic Center.
Each event included an interactive tour of the Mosque, an intriguing informational session, and free lunch!
At these ‘Open Mosque Day’ gatherings, guests were able to ask questions about Islam, dispel misconceptions, and learn about the impact that Muslims truly make in America.
