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 Women and their families 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.
