Mosque Security

Personal safety and mosque security advice for Muslim Americans and institutions


In a heightened political climate, Muslim individuals and institutions unfortunately can become the target of people's frustration and anger. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has prepared a kit that includes information and advice about mosque security and personal safety.

It is important for mosque officials, community leaders, teachers, and others to head the warnings and take the recommended precautions. The Muslim Community Safety Kit includes tips on:

  • Reporting suspicious activity in your community
  • Developing a legal contact list
  • Developing positive relationships with law enforcement agencies
  • Meeting with elected representatives to discuss community concerns
  • Building coalitions with interfaith and minority groups
  • Meeting with local school principals to discuss student safety
  • Building an emergency contact list
  • ...and much more
