Plan a Visit

Welcome, We’ll do our best to arrange a visit for you

You can visit the mosque, view one of 5 daily prayer services, attend one of their interfaith events, or just converse with the many members of a mosque. If you have any questions, you can also discuss them with the mosque members.

Mosques carry a great social and spiritual place in the lives of the Muslims. The mosque is the thing which unites them and their efforts. It refines their souls and awakens their minds and hearts. It solves their problems. The mosque shows their strength and cohesiveness.

(Triumphant) are those who turn repentant (to Allah), those who serve (Him), those who praise (Him), those who fast, those who bow down, those who fall prostrate (in worship), those who enjoin the right and who forbid the wrong and those who keep the limits (ordained) of Allah - And give glad tidings to believers!

Chapter 9 Verse 110

Learn About Islam

New Muslim Care Program

New Muslim Care is an initiative of The BCMA to cater to the needs of new Muslims and facilitate their integration into local Muslim communities.

Free of Charge

The entrance to mosques is free.

Prayer Time

Prayer times are based on the position of the sun in the sky. There are five prayer times a day: Fajr (dawn), Zhur (midday), Asr (afternoon), Maghreb (sunset) and Isha (night). The imam’s call for prayer is an invitation for the believers to come and pray, and a notification for you that the prayer is about to start.

Take Off Your Shoes

Shoes are not allowed in the prayer hall. Locals take off their shoes and leave them in the rack at the entrances.

Modest Dress Code

Believers have to be covered, almost completely. For tourist the rules are less strict, but when you plan a trip to a mosque try to dress modestly. The hair of the women as well as the shoulders and knees of both genders should be covered. If this is not the case, some mosques provide scarves and attires free of charge. But not all mosques have such a service, so you may want to carry yours along to be on the safe side.

Silence is Golden

Do not run, make jokes or laugh out loud. Talk as quiet and little as possible, and only when really needed. Also don’t forget to mute or switch off your mobile phone.

Photos and Videos

You can take photos or shoot videos inside the mosque. However, do not point your camera at believers during their ablution process outside the mosque, nor while they are praying inside the mosque. This is unfortunately the least respected of all rules.
