Muslim females in Barbados are in need of a central Masjid (Mosque) that has adequate provisions for females to perform daily prayers. For years, the existing three Masjids (Mosques) in Barbados (Jumma Masjid, Madina Masjid and Makki Masjid) have denied access to women. As a result women have become strangers to the places of worship.

In light of this, the Ladies 4 Masjid Petition is advocating for adequate provisions to be made for females at a new Masjid (Mosque) soon to be constructed in Clermont, Barbados. Masjids (Mosques) around the world have provided designated prayer spaces for Muslim sisters and as such we know that this new masjid can be purpose built without difficulty to include such a space.

We fully recognise that the Blessed Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) has said that there are more blessings if women performed prayers at home. At the same time however, we recognise that the Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) did not forbid women from praying in the masjid, therefore the intentional lack of provision and denial of access for females in the existing Masjids (Mosques) mentioned above is a violation of our rights.

The Ladies 4 Masjid campaign intends to bring global awareness to this issue and seeks your assistance in achieving the construction of a female inclusive Masjid (Mosque) by requesting that you sign our petition.

By signing this petition you acknowledge that the intentional lack of female prayer spaces and denial of access to Masjids (Mosques) is a violation of our rights and that you fully support a female inclusive Masjid (Mosque) at Clermont in Barbados.
