A couple of weeks ago, one of my longstanding wishes was fulfilled, when Nisha told me about a “Visit My Mosque” event after that morning’s club meeting. Rebecca, Nisha and I had a really interesting afternoon. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming, and the place was full of people from a wide range of ages and backgrounds.
We saw displays about the key points about Islam, as well as some beautiful old manuscripts dating back hundreds of years. There was a talk by the imam, and we heard a recitation from the Koran from a schoolboy. One young man told us how he had cycled to Mecca for the Hajj, and we heard about a Scout group associated with the mosque.
The Prime Minister was there –as you will see from Nisha’s photos! The mosque also provided some home cooked refreshments, which were extremely popular.It was an enjoyable afternoon, and a great opportunity to learn more about one of the world’s biggest religions.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
