Eighteen mosques across Massachusetts to open their doors to public

Massachusetts (IINA) – Eighteen mosques across Massachusetts will hold an Open Mosque Day on Sunday to give the public a chance to meet their Muslim neighbors.

On Sunday, attendees will have the opportunity to tour a mosque, hear a brief introduction to Islam and witness a Muslim prayer service, Columbia Daily Tribune News reported.

Wafaa Wahabi of the American Islamic Center in Everett in Washington said that during a time of misunderstanding about Islam, Muslims hope to show the communities they live in that they “live, pray and dream just like anyone else.”

Participating mosques include the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center in Boston, the Islamic Society of Greater Lowell in Chelmsford, Masjid Al-Ehsan in Dartmouth and the Islamic Society of Greater Haverhill.
