About us

"In the name of Allah, the most Compassionate, the most Merciful".

The Muslim Women's Association of Edinburgh was set up at the end of 2005 by a group of Muslim women who found a lack of social activities for Muslim Women in Edinburgh.

This group is run entirely by volunteers, working with women and their families in Edinburgh and the Lothians to build a stronger community through education and social activities.
