Two of Canberra’s mosques opened their doors to the public on National Mosque Open Day, Saturday 26 October 2019.
Gungahlin Mosque, in the north of Canberra, and CIC & Masjid Sabah Al-Ahmad, located in the south Canberra suburb of Monash, both invited the public to visit their mosques to broaden the community’s understanding of their Muslim neighbours and how a mosque operates.
Gungahlin Mosque President, Abdul Bari, and CIC President, Suhail Khan, stressed the importance of sharing knowledge and having an opportunity for members of the broader community to ask questions directly.
