The history and teachings of Islam will be in focus at an open day at Norwich's central mosque on Sunday, February 5.
The East Anglian Bangladeshi Islamic Centre in Rose Lane will throw open its doors to visitors from 10am to 3pm in an effort to make people more aware about Islam in a spirit of dialogue and friendship.
The day will feature tours, free refreshments, and a chance to observe prayer in the mosque.
Sirajul Islam, the centre's general secretary, said Islam was often unfairly associated with a minority radical element.
He said: 'We at the East Anglian Bangladeshi Islamic Centre along with our valued partner Muslim Council of Britain are delighted at the level of interest in this event.
'We look forward to giving our guests the chance to see for themselves what goes on in the mosque.'
Representatives from community groups will be attending.
