Visit of Abid Khan from Cheadle Mosque
In October we welcomed the Assistant Imam from Cheadle Mosque. He agreed to visit us following a meeting to the Mosque Open Day last month.
Abid and Zarif Mirza, a trustee at the Mosque, prayed at sunset as is their custom. Then they both addressed the club to tell us about their faith and Islam in the UK.
It soon became clear that Islam and Christianity share very similar values. Care for the sick and needy, feeding the hungry, sharing love of one another and helping others, are central elements of both religions. The Cheadle Mosque plays an important role in the community and it is a forward thinking and open place of worship for over 1000 Moslems every week at Friday prayers.
Our visitors stayed with us for an hour before making their way back to the Mosque for a meeting with Cheadle M P Mary Robinson..
