West Midlands Masjids Covid Response Booklet

West Midlands Masjids Covid Response Booklet


This booklet has been put together in collaboration with a large contingent of Birmingham Mosques, Islamic organisations and businesses. It serves to document and celebrate some of the great work carried out by the Muslim Community in the West Midlands over the pandemic. It also acts as a source of sharing best practices and provides case studies for how faith communities can contribute to their communities and build trust.


“Oh mankind, indeed We have created you from a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.” [Quran 49:13]
