About the Guide
The ‘Muslim Women’s Guide to Mosque Governance, Management and Service Delivery’ has been designed as a resource for Muslim women to enable them to fully engage with and spiritually, emotionally and practically serve their communities within the sphere of the mosque.
The Guide makes clear the prophetic practice of openess and inclusivity of women in the Mosque and sets outs specific practical examples and advice to both current and prospective Muslim women operating in faith institutions on how to become beacons of effective support and service delivery.
