Danish mosque continues to make history
Six months after the opening of Denmark's first mosque with female imams, Mariam mosque in central Copenhagen will hold the first Friday prayers in the Nordic region to be led by a female imam.
The event will take place on Friday August 26 and will only be open to women.
"We have conducted other Islamic ceremonies, but this will be the first Friday prayers in Scandinavia led by a female imam," said Sherin Khankan, one of the women behind the mosque, on her Facebook page.
