On Sunday 1st February 2015, the Muslim Council of Britain will be organising a national #VisitMyMosque day, where British mosques will open their doors to the general public.
Mosques will be sharing tea and refreshments alongside an insight into the day-to-day goings on of a busy Muslim centre of worship.
Members of the community are there to get to know one another better and some may be on hand to answer questions about Muslims and Islam where this is possible.
Local mosques will also be inviting inter-faith leaders as well, and all will be invited to come together to demonstrate unity and solidarity during what has been a tense time for faith communities.
Participating mosques will be listed at www.mcb.org.uk/visitmymosque
#VisitMyMosque day is part of a national initiative by Muslims to reach out to fellow Britons following tensions around terrorism. On 16 January, the Muslim Council of Britain organised Interfaith Solidarity Meetings in London and ...

Finsbury Park Mosque
It is devastating and sad for the Finsbury Park Mosque to find itself brought into the news for alleged problems in the past rather than for their current positive role in their community and throughout the borough. It also makes them targets for hate mail and threats. Abu Hamza, the radical cleric, was expelled from the Mosque in 2005 and for the last ten years the Mosque has been a very different place. The new leadership have reached out to the community, are fully integrated into the Islington Faiths Forum and, with other faith organisations in the Borough of Islington, have been responsible for holding workshops on issues of mental health, poverty and homelessness. They run English and IT courses, especially for women and work with local Christian volunteers to help the homeless of the area. They are fully involved in Peace Month each September when representatives of ...
Following the shocking murders in Paris, condemned by Muslims all over the world, and subsequent moves to depict the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) once again, Imams from the UK and abroad have come together to issue the following advice to those concerned about the depiction.
For Muslims, love of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is a NECESSARY part of our FAITH. He is dearer to us than our parents and children. We prefer him to our own self.
Accordingly we regret and are naturally hurt by the depiction of our Prophet Muhammad (upon whom be peace), a great personality held in high esteem by 1.8 billion Muslims and millions more, in such a manner.
Muslims do believe in freedom of speech. And they do respect the right for people to say what they believe to be correct. However, freedom of speech should not be translated in to ...
The trustees and management of Finsbury Park Mosque (FPM) wish to make it clear that they unequivocally condemn this week’s killing in Paris, which is a barbaric act and goes against the very teachings of Islam. Such violence has no place in a civilised society.
We would also like to point out that any attempts to link our mosque to at-least one of the men suspected of carrying out the attack are completely false. We have no information about any connections he had with those who ran the mosque previously. Anyone who visited Finsbury Park Mosque in any capacity prior to February 2005 did so under the previous management which was removed after a very public struggle against it. The facts of that struggle are well-documented elsewhere.
Over the last decade Finsbury Park Mosque has become a key part of the local community, and works alongside many different groups and faiths. The ...

Following the terrible incident on Holloway Road last September 2014, when a Muslim shopkeeper being attacked and injured by a knife because he looks like a Muslim. Finsbury Park Mosque with other Muslim Mosques and community organisations had a number of discussions with the local MP, the Islington police, the Islington council and Islington faith forum regarding establishment of a community led forum to examine the Police management and investment of Islamophobic and anti Muslim hate crime on the borough.
The aim of the forum is to build confidence between the local Muslim community and the local Police, identify improvements in the service delivery by the Police and increase safety and perception of Muslim people within the community.
Finsbury Park Mosque hosted the initial community meeting with the Police and the Council where more than 15 Mosques and Community representatives attended. After the welcome from the Mosque chairman Mohammed Kozbar, a presentation ...

Talk will be in English - ALL ARE WELCOME
The Muslim Council of Britain backs the Archbishop of Canterbury call on our government to do more to support those who find themselves hungry in this time of economic hardship and austerity. The Archbishop's call comes as an All-Party Parliamentary Committee today proposes urgent recommendations to tackle food poverty and hunger.
The Secretary General of the MCB, Dr Shuja Shafi said today:-
“We are extremely concerned at reports of increasing dependency by Britons on food banks and that people are going hungry including families with young children. In our country, one of the richest in the world, this is simply unacceptable and cannot be allowed to happen. We therefore welcome the intervention by the Archbishop and fully support his call.”
“Like many faith and civil society groups who have stepped up to provide food for those who find themselves in the unfortunate situation struggling to put meal on the table, many of our affiliated ...
