- Syria – who is on what side?
anyone for tea and biscuits at the local mosque
That story make me feel happy and sad at the same time. Sad that the protesters know so little of normal muslims other than the fear of the unknown and hate fed to them by bigoted manipulators. Happy that the mosque worshipers recognise this, and this fairly simple act of kindness will have hopefully changed (albeit maybe only a few) peoples perceptions.Posted 4 years agoernie_lynchMember
I once told a local muslim shopkeeper that I had always wanted to go inside a mosque. No problem he said, any friday you want just let me know and you can come with me to friday prayers. So the very next friday I went to the local mosque with him, it was a truly fascinating and brilliant experience. I spent about an hour there being shown around but what impressed me most was just how friendly and welcoming they were. The imams went out of their way to focus on what muslims and christians shared in common, rather than any differences, something which they clearly relished doing. They also constantly urged me to ask questions. All in all a tremendously worthwhile experience imo and I would urge other non-muslims to do the same.Posted 4 years agorogerthecatMember
Yup. Went on the school trips with my 2 to a Mosque, Gurdwara, Synagogue and Church – have to say the warmest greetings we had were at the Mosque and Gurdwara. Very gentle and gave as much time as the kids wanted to ask questions. Unfortunately we have a bit of an odd local vicar so he did not come out of it at all well.Posted 4 years ago
