who we are

We’re a team dedicated to helping organizations, businesses, and other buildings in opening Muslim-friendly prayer spaces.

how we can help

We can help you by

-connecting you with suppliers that can provide the materials for a welcoming musallah

-providing information on the need for more Muslim prayer spaces, and giving examples of other pre-existing musallahs within secular spaces

the need

With over 300 million Muslims living in minority contexts, there aren’t nearly enough prayer spaces to accommodate the average Muslim to pray the 5 daily prayers comfortably. Justifiably, Many Muslims fear praying publicly due to Islamophobia, and are forced to decide whether to compromise their safety and job security for the sake of prayer. Employers and government institutions can make it easier for Muslim citizens by providing them safe places to pray.


Musallahs can be *anywhere.*
