Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

For years, British Muslims have opened doors of their mosques to bring British community closer to Muslims and demystify myths about Islam.

As these tours become less likely, due to the COVID-19, some mosques are going virtual with a series of live virtual tours.

Jalalia Jaame Mosque, on Trafalgar Street in Wardleworth, Rochdale, Greater Manchester is one of these mosques opening its doors for a virtual open day, to connect with the local community.

They filmed a guided tour of their Mosque with the aim of educating those who had never been inside a mosque before.

“Mosques and Islam have been in this country for a long time, however most of the British public have never actually been to a mosque despite a lot of them knowing a lot of Muslims either as friends or colleagues,” Organiser Mohammed Iqbal Hossein, who has been a member of the Mosque since he was five years old, told In Your Area.

“So we just wanted people to feel what the inside of a mosque looks like, the various rooms, the operations of a mosque and the purpose of a mosque.

“We wanted to show to our local community here in Wardleworth, where we’ve been since 1971, that we’re not just there to serve the Muslim community, this is your local mosque too.”
