In Pictures: #VisitMyMosque Day 2018

Politicians, community activists, faith leaders and all types of members of the public converged on their local mosques last weekends. Celebrating the #VisitMyMosque day, a national campaign designed to encourage tolerance in society. Mosques around the country opened their doors to everyone so their neighbours could get to learn more.

More than 200 mosques took part in this year’s #VisitMyMosque day, and it attracted some high-profile politicians. Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, took a tour of his local mosque in Finsbury Park. Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, enjoyed a visit to Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in west London. And Prime Minister Theresa May visited her constituency’s Maidenhead Mosque where she told reporters that the day presented “a great opportunity to learn about Islam and see that it’s a religion of peace”.

A recent study, published by YouGov, found that around 90 percent of non-Muslims have never entered a mosque in recent years – if they ever have. So, it’s brilliant to have a whole day where Brits, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, come together to find out more about Islam. Non-Muslims were given tours of the mosques by attendees, had the opportunity to asks questions about faith and culture, and most importantly got to know each other over food and cups of tea.

Missed out? Here’s a roundup of our faves snaps from the day:
