Balham Mosque and Tooting Islamic Centre invite you to visit them on their Open Day from 12-4pm on Sunday 23rd October.  The Open Day is part of national  ‘Visit my mosque’ day. All are welcome.

There will be talks, displays and explanations of Islam and the Muslim way of life. During the visit, there will be

  • A series of interactive presentations
  • A tour of the mosque including the prayer hall and the ablutions area
  • Exhibitions including storyboards covering themes such as the history of Islam, women in Islam and Islam in the 21st century, and artefacts such as manuscripts and textiles
  • Refreshments: ‘chai and chat’
We enjoy living in a diverse area, but many of us know very little about other faiths and cultures, and how they influence the lives of the communities concerned. This is an opportunity to learn, ask questions, and enjoy a warm welcome and generous hospitality.

The mosque is keen to convey that it is strongly engaged with wider society. It gives support to those facing problems, whether Muslims or not. It supports local food banks and homeless support schemes, as well as contributing to tackling knife crime and, currently, signposting those struggling with the cost of living crisis to sources of support.
