Visit from Imam Amin and Saj from the Central Oxford Mosque
Today we were very fortunate to have a visit from Imam Amin of the Central Oxford Mosque. In Y6 we have been investigating how Muslims show commitment to God .In particular,we have been learning about the Five Pillars of Islam and why they are important to Muslims.
Imam Amin talked to us about how he leads prayer in the Mosque each morning and evening and how this is quite difficult at the moment as he has a baby son who is only one week old!
He recited passages from the Qu’ran and even showed us how he prays,taking care to wash first and face in the direction of Mecca .
We had the opportunity to ask questions and Siham impressed us by reciting some of the Qu’ran that she has been learning .
