Masjid Esa ibn Maryam in Birmingham is committed to fostering a sense of connection and engagement among girls and women from diverse backgrounds in the community. With a focus on their well-being and involvement in mosque activities, several services have been initiated to cater to their specific needs.
The mosque actively promotes mental health awareness, recognising the importance of addressing and supporting the mental well-being of its female members and serving as a platform for education, open discussions and resources related to mental health.
Additionally, Masjid Esa ibn Maryam offers the Sisters Foundation Tajweed program, emphasising the correct pronunciation and recitation of the Quran. This initiative provides women in the community with the opportunity to enhance their understanding and proficiency in the recitation of the holy book.
