Support our Feminist Imam Programme

Inclusive Mosque Initiative is an intersectional feminist mosque dedicated to creating inclusive, safer places of worship and spiritual practice for marginalised communities. We are committed to reviving a rights-based Islam that challenges all forms of oppression.

We are led by women, nonbinary and genderqueer people.

Everyday, Muslims reach out to us needing to speak to an imam about reconciling faith and sexuality, gender identity and interfaith relationships, patriarchy, divorce, and marriage. Without the resources to support, we have been signposting people to different support services. But very few services available are led by Muslims that will affirm Queer identities with an understanding of Islam as a liberating part of our lives. It’s time for us to build this service.

We have operated for the last three years with a small pool of diverse imams from different Islamic backgrounds, races, genders and perspectives. We’re now in a position to grow our group of imams, train them as chaplains and support our community.

All the money raised will go towards delivering:

·       Group and one-to-one sessions with a counsellor for LGBT+ Muslims struggling with reconciling faith and sexuality or gender identity. These will be affirmative spaces designed to support LGBT+ Muslims to use their own agency in their approach to all elements of their lives. 

·       Imam training to support LGBT+ Muslims and their families or friendship groups to support one another. 

·       Imam training to support the families of Muslims with mental health needs.

·       Imam training to support interfaith couples and their families.

·       Other elements of imam training such as safeguarding, anti-racism, anti-ableism, domestic abuse awareness and responsible leadership training. 

·       Payment for imams.

·       Continued professional development for imams.

Your donations mean we can do this urgent work and support Muslims from marginalised communities. Please share this fundraiser with your family and friends, and spread the word on social media.
