Can a non-muslim enter a mosque?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol,  no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


There is no harm if a non-muslim enters or visits a mosque; it may be that Allah Subhanah melts his heart and if He Wills, guide him to Islam.   The only mosques that a non-muslim cannot visit are the Sacred Mosque in Makkah, and the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina.   Other than these two mosques, there is no harm if a non-muslim visits any other mosque.


There is also no harm if a muslim visits a pagan religious or worshipping place.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
