Visit to the Al Furqan Mosque

Article 14: We have the right to practise our own religion.

On Tuesday 6th February we visited the Al Furqan Mosque in Gateshead. Tim the Imam explained how he leads the Muslim worshippers in prayer and how Muslims prepare for prayers through the process of physical purification where they wash their hands, arms, face and feet with water so they are cleansed for prayer. Tim was very informative and explained how and why Muslims pray 5 times a day. We also tasted Baklava (a delicious sweet dessert) made by one of our lovely parent helpers. Thank you to Tim and everyone who helped make our visit special.
