Europe’s first eco-mosque in Cambridge is set to open doors to neighbors and visitors on Saturday, December 7, offering them a unique opportunity to know more about Islam.
“Join us at Cambridge Central Mosque’s Community Open Day! Program includes: Guided Tours, Arts & Crafts, Islamic Science Exhibition, Bazaars, Children’s Activities,” the mosque wrote in a tweet.
Visitors will be offered a guided explanation of the ablution areas, prayer hall and the daily rituals performed.

Estimates in 2009 put the population of Muslims in the UK at around 2.4 million. According to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, the number of Muslims in Britain could now be around 3 million.
Muslims across the world usually open mosque doors to guests to enable them to have a glimpse of the Islamic faith.
For example, Visit My Mosque Day is held annually in a number of countries including Australia, the United Kingdom, Norway, and France.
