Question
Dear Sirs,
I would like to take some non Muslims to the Mosque with me to our local Mosque during Eid.  I was told it is not allowed.
The nom Muslims are good people and they will follow the procedures and clean their hands and do the washing and follow all what is asked of them.
I am surprised that if we call Mosque is a holy place where men and women gather to praise and pray to Allah then who as humans hinder others i.e. stop non Muslims to enter a place of worship.
This beats me.  It is Allah who will decide and punish those who entered his house.
I like the Muslim's view of Mosque where there are no statues or pictures because Allah is beyond comparison.
So how can we make judgement on his name?
Steve

  ASSALAAMU ALAIKUM WB

Actually, the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) used to welcome non Muslims to the Mosque  - actually, Muslims should be inviting Non Muslims to the Mosque, so they could hear and know more about Islam Inshaa Allaah Aameen .
People who prohibit non Muslims from coming to the Mosque, are either ignorant or just cultural.
