Our Mission

Berkshire Muslim Arab Community Association was established and founded by Arab
Muslims who felt the need to have such an association to help them and their children,
both those resident in Berkshire, or the temporarily staying in the area, to integrate with
the British society without losing their Arabic Muslim identity. The organisation has close
relations with all Muslim groups in Berkshire and organises for Taraweeh & Eid prayers
every year. BMACA was the lead to form Reading Muslim Forum for Moon Sighting.

natural disaster, trouble or catastrophe.
