During Prophet Muhammad, صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ, mosques were vibrant places where everyone, male or female young or old was welcome, a centre of community life, - a prayer space and so much more. But do our mosques today in the UK do the same for Muslim women? We want to learn more about your experiences and what you need or what you already value from your mosques locally. 

The information you provide us with will help us to better advocate for what you need from UK mosques. They will demonstrate positive examples of what kind of masjid works for Muslims in Britain today. It will also help us work with other organisations to support women who have experienced inequity, effectively raise the issues, ask for change, and get redress.

Thanks for filling out this survey and help us hear your voice. It will take about 5 minutes, but it will be of great help for our advocacy work. If you want to know more about the project or the survey, please contact Julie@togetherwethrive.co.uk.
