On the 26th of February, leaders from the Muslim Council of Britain, Wales, Scotland, and the Belfast Islamic Centre visited a range of different religious institutions.

From churches and synagogues to temples and gurdwaras, many hoped to see this important act as a symbol of hope and peace in a time where both are desperately needed.

After visiting the West London Synagogue, Harun Khan, the Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Britain said:

It was great to hear about the simliarity of the Jewish religious services to my own faith as a Muslim. I strongly encourage more of my fellow Muslims to visit other faith institutions as this will only make our bonds stronger as we have more in common than that which divides us.

The shared experiences of Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh, and Buddhist members, among many others, are what brings many of faith and spirituality together in an understanding of solidarity and peace. By visiting not only different faith institutions but also the different leaders and community members of each, these visits will hopefully open up the door for more interfaith dialogue from a grass-roots level.

Rabbi Helen Freeman of the West London Synagogue stated:

 We value the building of bridges of understanding with those of all faiths. So it was my particular pleasure to welcome visitors from the Muslim Council of Britain as we look forward to celebrating ‘Visit My Mosque’ day on Sunday 3rd March.

In the week leading up to #VisitMyMosque day on the 3rd of March, this bold act of solidarity will hopefully open up the dialogue for understanding and community bonding.
