Oaklands Primary Visits WLIC

On December 9th fifty children from our local Oaklands Primary School visited WLIC as part of their Religious Education study. Having toured the various parts of the Centre, the children were given a special introduction to Islam; the role of the Mosque in community life, as a place of peace, reflection and prayer; and the constant message of faith, to be good, generous, considerate and God conscious people. A lively and fun-filled question and answer time was only interrupted with the distracting arrival of fruit and juice for all!

Visit organiser, Ms Vanessa Kretzman said, ‘We really enjoyed the visit to the Mosque, everyone was very welcoming and hospitable. We enjoyed hearing about worship in the Mosque and particularly enjoyed seeing the prayer rooms for men and women. The children showed much interest and appreciated the opportunity to ask questions.’

We thank Oaklands Primary School for again allowing us the opportunity to host such an important learning and community building visit.

The Prophet (pbuh) said, 'Each person's every joint must perform a charity every day the sun rises: to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoisting up his belongings onto it is a charity: a good word is a charity, every step you take to prayers is a charity and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity.'
