Muslim Student House, Mosque, 517 Moseley Road, Balsall Heath, B12 9BX.
On March 3rd between 11 am and 4 pm the Students House Mosque will be hosting an open day for members of the public. All are welcome those of faith and none to explore the architecture and history of the building and the beliefs and practices of those who worship at the Mosque.
The organisers aim to make the local people become more familiar and comfortable with Islam, a religion that is misunderstood and in some instances mispresented in the media. In the spirit of dialogue and friendship, the masjid is opening its doors to the local community.
The day will feature stalls, these stalls aim to enlighten the public and distinguished guest on the practices of Islam. The day will have stalls such as a Hijab stall, Henna, Calligraphy and Face Painting for children along with other child-friendly activities led by our very own Scout Leader. Those in attendance will have the chance to observe prayer in the Mosque. Distinguished guests have been invited to attend also to say a few words.
