A List of Over 100 UK Mosques Open for Taraweeh This Ramadan for Muslim Women

by in Ramadan on 26th April, 2021

This list has been compiled by My Mosque Story who encourage you to visit the website of the mosque or give them a call prior to attending because some have booking systems in place or specific timings and guidelines on children under 12. If we’re missing a mosque, reach out to us on Instagram or Twitter @mymosquestory so we can help more women to take part in Taraweeh prayers this Ramadan.

This list was last updated at 23:24 on the 2nd of May 2021. 


With Ramadan right around the corner, My Mosque Story has been approached by a range of Muslim women who have found that whilst their local mosques are open, they are closed to women for Taraweeh prayers.

In order to help Muslim women find a space to take part in Taraweeh prayers at the mosque, we’ve asked our community to tell us if their local mosque is open for women this Ramadan.

With over 1500 mosques in the UK, below is a list of mosques across the UK that are open for Muslim women, the list has been collated through the community sharing information with us. We would encourage you to visit the website of the mosque or give them a call prior to attending because some have booking systems in place as they are required to open in line with the Government’s Covid-secure guidance which means space will be reduced due to the social distancing guidelines. 

Thank you to everyone who has helped to provide this information. May Allah accept our worship, allow us to get closer to Him this Ramadan and make us of the just. Ameen
