Nearly 300 students from St. Bartholomews School in Newbury visited Jamia Masjid Slough this week. Students from year 9, along with teaching staff enjoyed lovely tours of the mosque, interesting presentations and some delightful refreshments.
“I cannot thank you enough for all you did to ensure we were not only enlightened about beliefs, teachings and practices in Islam but also the warmth with which you all welcomed and took care of us. Everyone is really pleased. You went an extra mile. The volunteers, wow, never seen a committed team. Pass our appreciation to them all.” Teacher
At a time when ‘misinformation’ and ‘fake news’ about Muslims threatens the fabric of our multicultural communities, it is vital that mosques open their doors to the future generations to learn about the true message of Islam; a message self-worth, communal responsibility, and respect for all races, faiths and ethnicities.
