We have a responsibility to foster relations between us and our neighbors and neighboring schools and anyone who is interested in visiting the mosque. We receive our visitors with open arms. To serve you better, please contact us before your visit either by email or through the website or onsite so we can arrange for a proper effective visit. In the past we have received numerous requests for visits from nearby college students, neighbors and others.

If you are a student doing research about Islam or the Muslim community and would like to meet with Muslims or observe a prayer, please request permission from the mosque’s staff. You should be able to verify your contact information and research intent (teacher, professor or school).

    I’m a local college student here in Brighton, and I just wanted to know when I could visit your mosque. I don’t really have a purpose to visit other than I want to learn more about a religion I’m never really exposed to. I just really want to learn more about Islam, and the Muslim community in Boston.

    I am an undergraduate student who is interested in visiting your mosque for a paper I am writing. I am interested in learning about your religion and mosque. Could you please tell me what would be an appropriate time to go and visit? If there would be any way for me to observe a prayer or actually participate in one I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you so much for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.

    I am a high school student taking the Feature Writing on Race and Ethnicity course at Harvard Summer School. For my next article I am hoping to write the story of a muslim convert (someone who converted to Islam). If you could e-mail me with potential contacts, that would be of great help!
