Question:

As-salamu alaykum wa-rahmatullahi wa-barakatuh, Are the Kafirun (Non-Muslims) Allowed to go to Masjid? 

Answer:

Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuHu,

Even in the instance that a non-Muslim is in a state of major ritual impurity, it is permissible that he enter into a mosque when a Muslim has given him permission to do so. Without the permission of a Muslim, then a non-Muslim should not enter into a mosque, it is unlawful. In the instance that the purpose of inviting a non-Muslim to a mosque (not including the Holy Mosque in Makkah) is that he hear the Qur’an and be taught about Islam, hoping that will inspire him to embrace Islam, it is recommended. (Hashiyat al-Sharwani on Tuhfat al-Muhtaj v. 2, p. 168)

And Allah knows best.
