The Surrey Muslim Association (SMA) was inaugurated on the 12th December 2013 at Guildhall in Guildford. The SMA is a forum for Muslims in Surrey and consists of Imams, Chairs, Secretaries and other position holders of Mosques and Islamic Centres in Surrey.
According to the 2011 census in Surrey, Islam is the next biggest religious group (2.2%) in Surrey after Christianity. For a while this Muslim community in Surrey had been in search of a common platform to put across their feelings, ideas, thoughts and suggestions on various issues that touch their day to day lives.
SMA aims to provide all the Muslims of Surrey from all walks of life, an opportunity to come together and have one strong voice in order to make their views heard. Through SMA, the Muslims will be able to display and restore the true peaceful image of Islam, to remove misconceptions about Islam from peoples' mind, to reach out to the non-Muslim Community by engaging with them promoting integration and be a channel of communication for other agencies including the media.
The SMA Managment Committee meet regularly at various Mosques/centres in Surrey to discuss issues which are relevant to Muslims in Surrey.
