National Mosque Open Day is an annual Australia-wide event that endeavours to facilitate a greater understanding of Islam and Muslims in Australia by opening their doors to the public and inviting them to come in and explore their local mosque.
While mosques are open all year round, many non-Muslim Australians are unaware of this fact and do not take the opportunity to meet local Muslims and find answers to their questions about Islam. On National Mosque Open Day, each participating mosque will present a unique experience and flavour, representing the particular multicultural make-up of its congregation. Some mosques will have BBQs, sweets and food, others activities for children and others again will host special exhibitions. Many mosques will combine all of these elements. Common to all mosques, however, will be an open and welcoming attitude and the opportunity to ask questions of religious elders and seek answers to questions.
The next Mosque Open Day is being held on the 27th of October 2018 from 10AM to 4PM.
