Autism Mosque was started by Sara Mangera, living in England and mother of four. Two of whom are autistic. She wanted Mosques to do more to welcome and accommodate autistic people and generally increase the awareness and acceptance of autistic people within the Muslim community. United Nations figures show that 15% of the population live with disabilities. Sara believed that Muslims needed to do more to be inclusive of their disabled brothers and sisters. Sara founded The Elevate Movement, to increase the awareness, acceptance and inclusion of autistic people within the Muslim community.
