Year 10 Religious Studies Mosque Trip
Published on 05/10/18
On Wednesday 3 October, Year 10 pupils visited Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden as an introduction to Islam, which they will begin studying after half term as part of their GCSE Religious Studies. 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. We removed our shoes and went to look at the two huge prayer halls, also seeing 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 pilgrimage and fasting, to women’s rights and religious extremism. Our visit was concluded by hearing the call to prayer and watching the midday prayers take place.
