Community Welfare/Women’s Department

The Community Welfare office was established in the latter part of 2005. Heading the department is Sr Summayah who developed experience in this field throughout her years at the Islamic Cultural Centre. This office is responsible for facilitating workshops and conferences, plus exhibitions and fairs that benefit the Muslim community. Also on the agenda is the facilitation of workshops for service providers that will ultimately benefit the Muslim community. The office furthermore offers assistance to community members on many individual issues.

The women’s department at the ICCI play a functional role in the daily administrative duties of the centre as well as addressing needs of the many women that come to the office.  This office also is responsible for organising many outreach projects for the Muslim women in Ireland.

Women’s area

Due to the Islamic concept of modesty Muslim women have a separate area of the mosque for their use. This includes a prayer room and balcony overlooking the main prayer hall, a tea room, and a baby changing area, a meeting room, toilets, shower, and facilities for ablution. This section of the Centre is used for prayers and various religious, educational, and social programmes for Muslim women.
