Visit a Mosque Day planned Saturday, March 11

Muslim community reaches out to North Fulton community



NORTH FULTON – The Atlanta Muslim community has organized an Atlanta area Visit a Mosque Day (#VisitAMosqueATL ) for Saturday, March 11, 3-6 p.m. where Atlanta area mosques will open their doors to the general public.

“It is a chance to learn more about us as Muslims, and a chance for us to get to know our neighbors,” said Erhar Jameel.

Although most mosques are always open to the public, this is a chance for individuals and groups to join in a casual setting with Muslims from their neighborhoods.

The participating mosques in this event and invite people of other faiths to come and enjoy ethnic food and other goodies while you meet Muslims from your area.

Our goal is to strengthen communication and understanding across communities and allow people of different faiths to get to know one another on a more personal level, Jameel said.

We hope that this is one of many events that everyone will join in to help foster a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood among all religious communities. “Together, we can encourage people of all faiths to learn more about each other and build relationships which will ultimately strengthen our communities,” said Jameel.

Participating North Fulton mosques are:

• Hamzah Islamic Center 665 Tidwell Road, Alpharetta

• Islamic Center of North Fulton, 1625 Rucker Road, Alpharetta

• Roswell Community Masjid, 345 Market Place, Roswell
