Mosque open house May 21

May 11, 2023

Masjid Al Ehsan, 2 Cove Road, South Dartmouth, will host its fourth annual Open Mosque Day from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 21.

The public is invited to visit the mosque and meet Muslims. The community will open its doors to the public again after activities were suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Sponsored by the Islamic Council of New England, Open Mosque Day 2023 is an opportunity to ask Muslims questions directly about Islam and to see how prayers are held at the mosque.  

More than 20 mosques and Islamic societies in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire are opening their doors on that day with the same theme.  

This year’s theme “One Nation, Under God, Indivisible,” which comes from the United States Pledge of Allegiance, which all Americans, including Muslims, recite when becoming U.S. citizens and at other official events. 

The Islamic society wants the public to know Muslims residing here in the United States are dedicated to America and believe in the same God as other faiths. Now more than ever, the society reports, they stand together, undivided, and ready to support their home communities in the U.S.
