The Year Y5/6 children visited York Mosque where we were greeted by the friendly Imam, Abid Salik. Abid talked to us about why Muslims go to the mosque, the features of the mosque, the importance of prayer, and the significance of the 5 pillars of Islam. He also answered our many, many questions!
We also got to have a peek inside the new mosque. It’s enormous! We wondered what the old mosque will be used for when the new one is finished. Abid said they hadn’t decided yet but it might be used as community room.
