Welcome to the website of the Open Mosque, a virtual mosque (and not-so-virtual mosque) based in Blacksburg, Virginia. Here, we seek a fulfilling, relevant, and warm Friday prayer experience. After prayer in our physical location, we generally have healthy, home-made snacks, and a discussion.
We love that our prayer space is informal, laid back, and a place we can be ourselves. Everyone is welcome to pray at the Open Mosque.
As for this, the virtual counterpart, you’ll see some links on the right side of this page. Years ago, when I was thinking about what the ideal mosque would be like, I imagined it like a resource center. The imam would be well-read and well-connected so that no matter what you needed, she or he could point you in the right direction. That’s the goal of this section– to provide resources. We’re always looking for suggestions, so if you have any, shoot us an email.
More here soon.
