*FAITH DELEGATES VISIT JMIC*

*”Invite to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided.”* (Quran – 16:125)

Over 30 delegates from the Bracknell Forest Interfaith Group visited the JMIC on Wednesday 24th October. The group included members from various churches, synagogues and out-of-town mosques.

In addition to an extremely informative presentation, the delegates observed the Isha congregation prayer and had a great opportunity to ask questions over a light meal.

_*”Great presentation to get a greater understanding of the commonality between our faiths”*_ Madeline D

_*”Very kind of you to put all of this together, very interesting for us”*_ Reverend John

*Jamia Masjid & Islamic Centre Slough – JMIC*

In the summer of 1982, a Welsh Congregational Church was purchased and converted into a Mosque. This, however, was quickly outgrown and as a consequence of that, the old building was pulled down to make way for a new and improved version - the Mosque you see today. Construction began in 1999 and during this period, the Navel Club behind the site was purchased and used as a temporary building for daily prayers with Jummah (Friday congregation) being held in a hired hall. The completed Mosque was named the 'Jamia Masjid & Islamic Centre' (JMIC) and although it had been in use from the year 2000, the official opening was on the 18th of May 2001 by His Excellency, Abdullah Sultan Al-Dhahiri - Director General of "The Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahayan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation".
