Y10 Visit Baitul Futuh Mosque
Published on 25/09/17
On Wednesday 13 September, Year 10 Religion and Philosophy pupils visited Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden, the largest mosque in Western Europe.
After being met by two members of the mosque, we embarked on a tour around the complex, taking in the view of the minaret and dome before heading inside. After removing our shoes, we went to look at the two huge prayer halls and also saw the clocks which let worshippers know when each of their five daily prayers should take place. There were many opportunities for pupils to ask questions along the way, about anything from fasting and charity, to women’s rights and religious extremism. Our visit was concluded by hearing the call to prayer and watching the midday prayers take place.
