GLMCC Call to Prayer Announcement
We hope this message finds you all in the best of health and faith.
This Ramadan and Eid have been very different from previous years with the cancellation of many of the masjid/mosque activities and our large annual Eid Celebration in the park.
To help celebrate the month of Ramadan and Eid, Birmingham City Council has allowed the mosques around the city to make the Muslim Call to prayer. At Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre, this will be performed today (Friday 22nd May) and on Eid (which will fall either on Saturday or Sunday this weekend) at around 1.30 pm on both days.
We would like to inform our neighbours, congregation and friends of this and hope that you will enjoy this special event.Mohammed Saeed, Chair of Trustees commented:
“This is the first time that something like this has been done across Birmingham. The call to prayer has a special place in the hearts of Muslims and is a lovely gesture by the Council to allow this beautiful act to be performed aloud on Friday and Eid.”
The call to prayer will be made on the masjid/mosque loudspeakers and will only last around 2 minutes each day.
We would like to wish you all a blessed Ramadan for what remains and a joyous Eid.
