A good development as peaceful believers grow to learn of each other’s shared hopes and aspirations

More than 80 mosques all over Britain opened their doors to non-Muslims this Sunday, offering “tours and tea” in an effort to explain Islam beyond the “hostile headlines” amid a surge of Islamophobic sentiment across Europe.

This weekend, two of Britain’s oldest mosques, the Shah Jahan Mosque in Woking, and Liverpool’s Abdullah Quilliam Mosque are participating in this year’s Visit My Mosque event.

Mosques in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Cardiff, Belfast, Plymouth and Canterbury are also involved in the initiative. It is being run by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), an umbrella organization that unites 500 affiliated national, regional and local Islamic bodies, mosques, charities and schools.
