More than 150 mosques around the UK will open their doors to non-Muslim visitors this weekend to offer people a better understanding of Islam and the chance to ask questions about the faith.
Thousands of people are expected to take part in the third annual Visit My Mosque day, visiting mosques from Inverness to Plymouth. Most are in cities with large Muslim populations. In addition to
explaining the basic tenets of Islam, prayer rituals and the influence of faith on everyday lives, the mosques will also showcase social and charitable projects that aid the homeless and refugees.
