About Beacon Mosque

The Beacon Mosque has been developed to recognize that the role Mosques and Islamic Centre’s play in the macro infrastructure of towns and cities is being felt and their impact on the social and cultural fabric of society is being measured.

The Beacon Mosque initiative offers Mosque leadership to rate their Mosque against a set criterion to achieve a 3*, 4* or 5* rating.  A 5* rated Beacon Mosque truly serves both its congregation and the wider community, through an efficient, inclusive, and sustainable provision of services. The optimal utilization of a mosque is only achieved when leadership, management and members begin to understand the scope & purpose of the mosque; how it is not just simply a place for prayer, but a focal point for the entire community to serve, safeguard and support.
