Females Invited for Open Consultation
Bradford’s Muslim Women’s Council is inviting women to have their say on plans for a female-led mosque.
The invitation comes after plans were revealed for a female-only mosque, which is set to open within the next couple of months.
The facility, in Bradford, would also provide a space for learning and social interaction as well as worship.
The organisation hopes to create a place where women can feel comfortable discussing issues that affect them and their families in daily life, such as divorce, bereavement, parenting and legal advice services. The space would be open to all women, regardless of faith.
On Sunday, June 14, the group is hosting a consultation session on the plans and Ramadan seminar, from 3.30pm until 7pm, at the Carlisle Business Centre, in Carlisle Road, Mannigham.
Both sessions are for women only and will be led by Dr Shuruq Naguib, a lecturer in Islamic Studies at Lancaster University, and co-chair of the British Association of Islamic Studies.
People are encouraged to register for a place at the free event, which includes refreshments and is followed by dinner, as places are limited.
