DESCRIPTION
Why should I visit Exhibition Islam 2017 at Rose Lane Mosque?
The Exhibition Islam event at Rose Lane Mosque brings together a wealth of information
about Islam under one roof giving the opportunity for the wider community to learn more
about their Muslim neighbours in a friendly environment.
There are about 3 million Muslims in the UK and an estimated 1,750 mosques. The mosque
is a place to gather for daily prayers, to study and to celebrate festivals such as Eid after the
fasting month of Ramadan. However, many within our local community are yet to visit a
Mosque. Our doors are always open for visits throughout the year; Rose Lane Mosque hopes
that a communal event will allow the wider community to visit in larger groups.
So if you’re still not sure whether to attend here’s a few reasons:
 Learn more about your Muslim neighbours and the way of life of 5% of the UK
population
 Ask questions in a relaxed, friendly environment
 Explore the unknown – see the inside of a Mosque
 Most importantly – join us for Coffee and Tea with some light refreshments

We look forward to welcoming you to the Exhibition.
