Visitors are welcome in most mosques throughout the year. Many mosques are not only places of worship, but are used as community and education centers as well. Non-Muslim visitors may wish to attend an official function, meet Muslim community members, observe or learn about our way of worship, or simply admire the Islamic architecture of the building. Below are some common-sense guidelines that may help make your visit both respectful and pleasant.

Finding a Mosque

Tour inside Jumeira Mosque, Dubai John Elk / Getty Images Mosques are found in a variety of neighborhoods, and there are many different sizes and styles. Some may be purpose-built, elaborate examples of Islamic architecture that can hold thousands of worshippers, while others may be located in a simple rented room. Some mosques are open and welcoming to all Muslims, while others may cater to certain ethnic or sectarian groups. In order to locate a mosque, you may ask Muslims in your area, consult a worship directory in your city, or visit an online directory. You may find the following words used in a listing: Mosque, Masjid, or Islamic Center.

What Time to Go

After you decide which mosque to visit, it may be best to reach out and learn more about the site. Many mosques have websites or Facebook pages which list prayer times, opening hours, and contact information. Walk-ins are welcome in some more-visited places, especially in Muslim countries. In other places, it is recommended that you phone or email ahead of time. This is for security reasons, and to be sure that someone is there to greet you. Mosques are usually open during the times of the five daily prayers and may be open for additional hours between. Some mosques have special visiting hours set aside for non-Muslims who wish to learn more about the faith.

Where to Enter

It is best to ask about parking and doors when you contact the mosque ahead of time or go with a Muslim community member who can guide you. Before entering a prayer area, you will be requested to remove your shoes. There are shelves provided outside the door to place them on, or you may bring a plastic bag to hold them with you until you leave.

Who You Might Meet

It is not required for all Muslims to attend all prayers in the mosque, so you may or may not find a group of people gathered at a given time. If you contact the mosque ahead of time, you may be greeted and hosted by the Imam, or another senior community member. If you visit during a time of prayer, especially Friday prayer, you may see various community members including children. Men and women usually pray in separate areas, either in separate rooms or divided by a curtain or screen. Female visitors may be guided to the women’s area, while male visitors may be guided to the men’s area. In other cases, there may be a common gathering room where all community members mingle.

What You May See and Hear

For elderly or disabled community members, there may be a few chairs available. There are no sacred objects in the prayer room, other than copies of the Quran which may be along the walls on bookshelves. As people enter the mosque, you may hear them greeting each other in Arabic: “Assalamu alaikum” (peace be upon you). If you choose to reply, the return greeting is, “Wa alaikum assalaam” (and upon you be peace). At the times of the daily prayers, you will hear the call of the adhan. During prayer, the room will be quiet except for phrases in Arabic that the Imam and/or worshipers recite. Before entering the room, you may see worshipers doing ablutions if they did not do so at home before coming. Visitors who are not participating in the prayer are not expected to make ablution.

What People Will Be Doing

During prayer, you will see people standing in rows, bowing, and prostrating/sitting on the floor in unison, following the leadership of an Imam. You may also see people making these movements in individual prayer, before or after the congregational prayer. Outside of the prayer hall, you will see people greeting each other and gathering to talk. In a community hall, people may be eating together or watching the children play.

What You Should Wear

Neither men nor women should wear shorts or sleeveless tops. In most mosques, visiting women are not requested to cover their hair, although the gesture is welcome. In some Muslim countries (such as Turkey), head coverings are required and are provided for those who come unprepared. You will remove your shoes before entering the prayer hall, it is recommended to wear slip-off shoes and clean socks or stockings.

How You Should Behave

During prayer, visitors should not talk or laugh loudly. Mobile phones should be switched to silent or turned off. The congregational part of the daily prayer lasts between 5-10 minutes, while the Friday noon prayer is longer as it includes a sermon. It is disrespectful to walk in front of someone who is praying, whether they are participating in the congregational prayer or praying individually. Visitors will be guided to sit quietly in the back of the room to observe the prayers. When meeting Muslims for the first time, it is customary to offer a handshake only to those of the same gender. Many Muslims will nod their heads or place their hand over their heart when greeting someone of the opposite gender. It is advisable to wait and see how the person initiates the greeting. Visitors should refrain from smoking, eating, taking pictures without permission, argumentative behavior, and intimate touching – all of which are frowned upon inside a mosque.

Enjoying Your Visit

When visiting a mosque, it is not essential to be overly concerned with the details of etiquette. Muslims are usually very welcoming and hospitable people. As long as you attempt to show respect for the people and the faith, small missteps or indiscretions will certainly be excused. We hope that you enjoy your visit, meet new friends, and learn more about Islam and your Muslim neighbors. by Bryan Carey Although visiting a mosque with a Muslim friend is usually easier than going on your own, you might not know any Muslims yet or the Muslims you do know may not go to prayers regularly. That shouldn’t get in the way of your interest in meeting your Muslim neighbors or learning more about Islam. I’ve found that even Muslims I’ve just met are excited to show off their place of worship and answer my questions. While I’m certainly not an expert, people sometimes wonder what steps I take to visit a local mosque and how they might be able to meet their Muslim neighbors as well – so here are a few tips.

Step 1 – Find out what mosques are in the area and give them a call

A quick Google search for “mosque,” “masjid,” or “Islamic Center” will probably yield a couple results close to you. Reach out via the website, Facebook page, or listed phone number. You can ask if you can visit the mosque, and there’s a good chance that an imam or senior member of the community will set up a time when they can greet you and host your time, answering any questions you have. Muslims have a well-deserved reputation for being incredibly hospitable. Don’t be too off-put if someone doesn’t answer your initial call immediately, though – most mosques don’t function like churches with open office hours during the week. So you may need to try more than one location or wait a few days to call back at a different time before you get a response.

Step 2 – Wear modest clothing

To show respect for the prayer time, both male and female visitors should wear simple, modest clothing. Men should aim for jeans or long pants and preferably a top with sleeves. It’s a good idea for women to wear long sleeves with either loose-fitting pants or a long skirt. While some mosques do not require visiting women to cover their hair, it is a sign of respect (and the gesture is welcome!) for women to cover their hair with a scarf inside, especially in the prayer room (there’s no special way you have to wear it – just wrap it around and tuck it in). Some of the larger mosques even have scarves in the prayer room for the convenience of visitors. Wearing makeup isn’t a problem. If you contact the mosque, you can ask what they would prefer women to wear ahead of time. I’d also recommend wearing shoes you can easily slip off, since both men and women must remove their shoes before entering the prayer hall. Most of the time being barefoot isn’t a problem, but you may feel more comfortable if you wear (matching!) socks.

Step 3 – Visit!

After setting up a time to go, enjoy your visit! If you’re able to visit the mosque during the Friday congregational prayer (typically the most well-attended prayers during the week, generally early Friday afternoon), it’s a great opportunity to meet some of the community. Many men will leave quickly to get back to work, but I’ve found there are often opportunities to get to know the imam or other members of the community afterwards. There are also additional prayer times during the week (five each day!) when you might be able to arrange a visit, meet a few people from the community, and learn more about Islam.

Step 4 – Show respect by paying attention to some mosque etiquette

When you arrive, you’ll probably find that men and women will enter through separate entrances, though some mosques may have common areas that are separate from the prayer rooms where both men and women will enter. You’ll take your shoes off before entering the prayer room (you’ll notice the shoe racks), and women will enter into a smaller prayer room behind, above, or in the back the main prayer room. This is to preserve their modesty since they too will be bowing for the salah (or salat), the Muslim prayers. As you enter, you will probably see hand or foot washing stations where Muslims make ablution or purify themselves by washing before the prayers. This is not required when you are just observing. Once you’re inside, basic etiquette rules apply like in any religious setting (turning off your cell phone, not talking or laughing loudly, refraining from taking photos). I’ve also learned that it’s seen as disrespectful to walk in front of people while they’re praying. It’s also helpful to know the words, “As-salam Alaikum” (“Ah-sah-lahm Ah-lay-ee-koom”) which means in Arabic “peace be upon you,” and the response, “Wa ‘alaikum-as-salam” (“Wah-ah-lay-ee-koom-ah-sah-lahm”), or “peace be upon you, too.” You’ll hear that a lot. Lastly, rather than shaking hands with the opposite sex (if you meet them outside or in a common area), I’ve found that it’s best to smile and put my hand over my heart or incline my head a bit when greeting a Muslim woman. Or, you can simply let the other person take the initiative if they’re of the opposite sex.

Step 5 – Observe and pray privately

After you enter, you will see people praying and bowing privately. Eventually, you will hear the call to prayer (adhan) followed by a short sermon or lecture (the khutbah, only during Friday congregational prayers), listen to another call to prayer, and then the observe the congregation as they stand shoulder-to-shoulder and follow the imam in the congregational prayer (salah). Just like many embodied prayers in Christianity, I’ve found that the rhythms of bowing during the salah to be a time of incredible reverence, so I enjoy having my own private time of prayer while my Muslim friends are praying. There is quite a bit of kneeling and bowing during the Muslim prayer, however (a sign of submission to God), so if you’d prefer not to stick out, you might want to observe from the side or back of the prayer room.

Step 6 – Chat with the imam or another senior member of the mosque

After the prayers are finished and if I haven’t already met the imam or another senior member of the Muslim community, I try to make a effort to meet them in addition to the individual hosting my visit. Because there has been a history of distrust between Muslims and Christians, I’ve found that it starts my relationships out on the right foot when I first introduce myself to the leaders, share openly about my work with Peace Catalyst International and my personal motives for visiting their mosque, and ask about their experience with local Christians. In other words, I do everything in my power to resist the appearance that I’m avoiding the Muslim community’s leadership or may have veiled motives for being present. Remember: there are no “dumb” questions! If you ask a question about communion in a Baptist church and then in a United Church of Christ, you’ll get different answers. That’s because churches in the US are different. Mosques are different, as well. One imam might answer a question about women’s dress differently than another (actually, they probably will!). As long as you try to ask your questions respectfully, humbly, and out of a genuine curiosity to learn, you’ll be just fine.

Step 7 – Take time to learn about the community and explore future opportunities together

After meeting with the local Muslim leaders, I’ll usually get introduced to lots of incredible people who are deeply involved with mosque activities, interfaith events, or social justice endeavors. Typically, after any amount of consistency on my part and an effort to build a friendship or two via coffee or a meals, amazing opportunities pop up for local churches and small groups to get to know their local Muslim community and work together for the common good of their community. It’s easy to stay in our circles, to keep to the people we know, who are familiar, who look and believe like we do. But there’s power in widening our perspective, in seeking out those who are different from us. When we try to understand others, when we experience part of their daily existence, it creates empathy and connection. Barriers come down. That person who was “the other” is now someone we understand, we know. Christianity and Islam are the two largest religions in the world, and they’re often set up in opposition to each other. So what if you took a step and visited a mosque. What new relationships, connections, and understanding could be borne out of your visit?

Visiting a Mosque: Everything You Need to Know

Is a Mosque a Muslim Church?

Mosques are places of worship for Muslims, but also contain teaching and community spaces. They’re a central gathering place for Muslims, both for worship and faith and also for community and learning.

When Do Muslims Go To Mosque?

Muslims pray five times a day facing Mecca. The mosque is available for any and all of these prayer times, but communal praying at the mosque is always encouraged, particularly for the midday prayer, and especially for midday prayers on Friday. Muslims often attend the mosque on Friday for midday prayer, teaching, and sermon. Mosques are also used for weddings, funerals, and Ramadan festivals and prayer services. They are also used as community spaces and sometimes offered as homeless shelters as well.

Who Is the Head of the Mosque?

The head of the mosque is the Imam, but not all mosques have one. Some mosques might use a visiting Imam, or members of the mosque community might serve as the prayer leader or teach from the Muslim Holy Book.

Will I Even Be Welcome?

You might question whether a mosque is even open to you, if it would intrusive and disrespectful to go into a place of worship where you believe differently. However, like most churches and other places of worship, most mosques welcome visitors of other faiths. Some mosques hold periodic interfaith gatherings or open houses, so you can look to see if one of these will be happening at your local mosque.

Call Before You Go

You can do a quick web search for “mosque,” “Islamic center,” or “masjid” (the Arabic word for mosque) to find one close to you. Before you go, it’s a good idea to call and ask if they are welcoming visitors right now. Many mosques understandably have heightened security. And in some cases, like after the New Zealand mass shooting, they might be asking visitors to schedule a visit for a later date. You can also ask when would be the best time for you to visit. Friday prayers are often a great time to attend, meet community members, and observe worship customs. Keep in mind that many mosques are rather small and might not have staff available to answer the phone at all times. If you call and don’t receive an answer, don’t be discouraged. Give it another try. You might also reach out by email, their Facebook page, or through their website, if they have one.

What to Wear to a Mosque

Men and women should both dress modestly, in looser-fitting clothing that covers the arms and legs—no shorts or sleeveless shirts for either gender. Women should also bring a scarf. Not all mosques will ask female visitors to cover their heads, but it’s a sign of respect to have one ready. (But if you forget a scarf, don’t worry. Most mosques have extra.) Makeup is OK. And kids can wear whatever they want. You’ll also want to be sure to wear clean socks or stockings, because you’ll be asked to remove your shoes before you enter the prayer area. (Many mosques have a room/shoe rack just off the entrance where you can safely store your shoes and other personal belongings.)

How to Greet People

Most mosques are very welcoming communities—don’t be shy! To greet someone, you can use the traditional Islamic greeting “Asalam ‘alaykum,” which means “peace be upon you.” Don’t worry about mispronouncing it. Most people will be delighted you made the effort. Feel free to shake hands with people of the same gender. When greeting someone of another gender, follow the other person’s lead. Some will be perfectly comfortable shaking hands; others will prefer not to. In such cases, a suitable alternative is to put your hand over your heart. Remember it’s OK to make mistakes, as long as you’re being respectful and observant.

What Does a Muslim Service Look Like?

Expect to be welcomed! The Muslim faith places a high value on hospitality. People are incredibly friendly, especially if they know you’re coming and are ready to welcome you. When you arrive, someone will probably show you where to remove and store your shoes. Be sure to silence or turn off your phone. This is not the time to take selfies, text, or make phone calls. Don’t hold conversations or talk once you’re inside the prayer hall. Muslims perform ablution (ritual washing) before entering the prayer hall. Some mosques have specially equipped bathrooms for men and women to wash their faces, arms, and feet. As a visitor, you probably won’t be expected to do ablution in order to enter. The prayer hall will not have pews or seats; people sit on carpets or rugs. There might be a few chairs available for people with disabilities or the elderly. There are different entrances for men and women, who sit on different sides of the prayer hall. Depending on the mosque, there might be a partial or total barrier dividing the women’s and men’s sections of the hall. If you’re visiting with young children, they’ll generally be able to stay with you, regardless of gender. People will stand, bow, prostrate and sit in unison at different points during the prayer. You don’t have to join in; you can just observe quietly. When a Muslim is praying, they will not talk or respond to you until they have completed the prayer. You can ask questions before or after. As it’s considered disrespectful to walk in front of someone who is praying, you might be asked to sit in the back, so you can observe the service from there. Friday prayers tend to be a longer service, as they include a sermon, customarily delivered in two parts. The sermon is often entirely or partially in Arabic and is followed by prayers. Depending on the mosque, the service will last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. The most important thing to remember during your mosque visit is to be fully present. Don’t be so worried about doing the “right” or “wrong” thing that you miss the chance to connect with someone different from you. This is how peace is waged—by taking one small step into the unknown. By getting to know someone who looks different, prays differently, or sees the world differently than you do. This is how we push back against fear, polarization, and mistrust. This is how we make the more beautiful world together. Pick up the phone today and get in touch with your local mosque. Take one small step toward peace. things you need to know when visiting a mosque Be it by floating along the banks of the Bosphorus or by trekking along the craggy cliffs of the Emerald Isle, religious buildings are a must-see when travelling. Yet making sure your visit is respectful can be rather tricky. This is especially true when entering the stunning temples of Istanbul. Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of things you need to know when visiting a mosque in this mesmerising city, a highlight of any trip to Turkey.

  • When can you visit a mosque?
  • What to wear when visiting a mosque for the first time
  • What not to do when entering a mosque
  • Gender separation

When can you visit a mosque?

Things you need to know when visiting a mosque Firstly, be aware that not all mosques are open to the public. Secondly, the majority close to visitors during hours of worship. Although Turkish Muslims perform the prayer ritual – known as namaz – five times a day, it’s not vital that muslims pray in mosques. However, many strive to do so. The exact time of the ezan (call to prayer) changes from day to day and from place to place, according to longitude and latitude, hours of daylight and the geographical relationship to Mecca. So how will you know it’s prayer time in Istanbul? To be honest, it’s hard not to know as this enchanting call is belted out from the minarets dotted throughout out the city centre. If you are non-Muslim, avoid entering mosques within half an hour after the ezan and also avoid visiting on Fridays from the later hours of the morning to early afternoon, as this is a popular prayer time. A good rule of thumb is that if the mosque is busy with worshippers, go back later.

What to wear when visiting a mosque for the first time

As a rule everyone must wear modest, loose-fitting clothes that show very little skin. For men, it is better to wear long pants and long sleeved tops; for women, trousers, full-length skirts or dresses with sleeves that cover the arms. Along with these rules, many suggest that women wear a headscarf in the prayer hall. We also advise that you refrain from wearing loud colours and to remember to take off your shoes before entering.

What not to do when entering a mosque

Upon entering a mosque, refrain from rolling up your sleeves as this is interpreted as a serious lack of respect. Other lesser-known signs of disrespect are easy to commit. One, for instance, is that you should always enter a mosque with the right foot first and leave with the left foot. Secondly, you shouldn’t point your feet in the direction of Mecca when sitting. Thirdly, keep in mind that members of the opposite mustn’t shake hands with members of the opposite sex. When entering mosques you will usually hear “Assalam Alaikum” which means “peace be upon you.” The correct reply is “Wa alaikum-as-salam” which means “peace be upon you too.” Non-muslim visitors are not expected to return the greeting, but doing so will go do down extremely well.

Gender separation

Depending on the mosque you visit it may have two entrances: one for men and one for women. This is normally clearly marked above the entrance. These lead to separate prayer rooms. Usually men and women are allowed to enter and visit the mosque together. Again, as with all the advice here, pay attention to the rules of visiting displayed at the entrance. If you’ve never visited a Mosque (or Masjid at it’s called in Arabic) before, it might be a scary experience visiting for the first time! What do I do when I enter the mosque? What clothes should I wear? Is it okay for me as a none Muslim to go in? Not to worry! We’ll answer all your Mosque etiquette questions below! So you can visit a Mosque without worrying!

Can I go as a none Muslim to a Mosque?

Yes! There are lots of Mosques in global destinations such as the Abu Dhabi Mosque and Blue Mosque in Turkey that offer tours for none Muslims. Even if it’s a mosque that doesn’t have a tour. It’s still okay for you to enter. You just need to be respectful of the rules (which I’ll go further in to below) and keep in mind that it’s a place of worship. Most central mosques in different cities will also have an office or Islamic center as part of the mosque. Some even have areas to sit or when you can eat food. If knock on the door of the office, often they’re happy to have a chat about the mosque and help you find your way around. Check their website in case there is instructions for those who are not Muslim but would like to come see the Mosque.

What to wear when visiting a Mosque

It depends on the mosque! For the mosques even for tours, the majority require women to wear hijab or to cover their hair. It’s best practice to take a scarf with you, so you can wrap it to cover your hair just in case. Also you should wear long sleeves and long trousers. The mosques which are used to having tourists visit, tend to have robes available just in case! For men, modesty is also required and you should wear trousers and a t-shirt with decent sized sleeves. It’s also a good idea to have a shower before you leave for the mosque and not to wear heavy perfumes. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) took great pride in his clothes and smells should not distract worshipers from their prayers. The Mosque in Abu Dhabi has abayas which they provide. An Abaya is an Arabic garment made from fabric that clips over your outfit. The Abu Dhabi Mosque Abayas also have a hood. The hood must be kept up and covering your hair the entire time you are in Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Pay attention to the entrances

Often the main entrance is only for men and is the main prayer hall. During a tour, they may allow you in this area but if it’s during prayer times men will typically stop women from entering. If it’s a local mosque that doesn’t offer tours, either look for signs for women or if it’s during prayer time. Look at where the women are heading. Typically the women’s sections in ordinary mosques aren’t as beautiful as the main prayer halls. So it’s better to visit a mosque that has tours so you can not only learn about the history and architecture of the mosque but also as a woman get to see the splendor of the main prayer hall! For the mosque in Abu Dhabi, the security entrances are clearly labelled with men and women. Once you pass security it becomes mixed again. However the main prayer hall is for men only but women are able to see inside of it as part of the tour in between prayer times.

Entering the mosque

When entering the Mosque you will need to take off your shoes. You will usually find a shoe rack where you place your shoes. During prayer time its common for worshipers to line their shoes along the halls or even outside the mosque. If you’d like to be like the Muslims and show off your knowledge, you should enter with your right foot. The is based on the practices of Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings be upon him. In the Abu Dhabi Mosque, there used to be shoe racks at the entrances after security but most of these have been removed now and only in the areas just outside the prayer halls. You’ll find people wear shoes in the areas outside of the prayer halls and others will walk bare foot. It’s worth taking a large bag or spare bag for you to pop your shoes in.

What is the Muslim greeting?

It’s common for other Muslims to greet you when you enter the mosque, they will normally say “Salam alaikum” which means “Peace be with you” in Arabic. The reply back is “Wa alaikum salum” which translates to “And peace be upon you.” If you’re a little worried to say it all, you can also just say “Salam” which means “Peace” but is used in the same way we say “Hello.”

Prayer Times

If you’re wanting to have a wander around, the best time is to go outside of the prayer times (use this website to check the times). Especially if it’s a smaller mosque that doesn’t have amenities set up for tourists. There are five daily prayers. You will hear the Azan (call for prayer) to let you know when it’s prayer time. These are just before sunrise, midday, mid afternoon, sunset and typically half an hour after sunset. The prayers are lead by an Imam. It is a time when people are quiet and focused on their prayer. Even after the prayer has finished you may find people staying to do extra prayers or sitting on the floor. So make sure to be extra careful at these times and respectful of those coming to pray. On a Friday, Khutbahs are held and these days are pretty busy! Often with whole families in attendance. It’s not ideal to visit on these days and typically those involved or volunteering for the mosque will be very busy. So I wouldn’t recommend to visit on a Friday. If you’re curious about the prayer, quietly sit at the back.

Rules & General Etiquette

You will notice either an arrow or a section of wall where there is a cut out section with a domed roof. This is the direction of Mecca. You will notice everyone stands to face that way or sits and faces that way. Typically the carpets will have lines so that people know which direction to stand.

  1. When sat, don’t point your feet at the direction of Meeca
  2. Do not walk in front of people praying
  3. Do not take photos of women without their permission
  4. Be quiet in the prayer halls and rooms
  5. Keep yourself dressed modestly in all areas of the mosque
  6. Keep your phone on silent
  7. Don’t offer to shake hands with the opposite gender
  8. Do not eat unless it’s an area specified for eating
  9. Keep the prayer rooms clean
  10. Do not eat or drink close to or inside the Mosque during Ramadan

Leaving the mosque

There are no specific customs for leaving the mosque except to leave with your left foot. Place you shoes back on and enjoy the rest of your day! Now that you’re all clued up on Mosque etiquette! I really hope you enjoy your time in the Masjid. Whether you’re visiting the mosque in Abu Dhabi or the Blue Mosque in Turkey. Or one of the many beautiful mosques around the world! For most of us, it’s a truly unforgettable experience.
