Both Bishops have sent warm and encouraging messages about our vigilwith Imam Mohammed last Sunday evening.
The Imam has sent a message to everyone who has been with them in thought and prayer:
Thank you so much for your letters, emails and flowers of condolences on the New Zealand terrorist attack in the Christchurch city.
Indeed, we got so much comfort from your kind words and thoughts. We actually took great strength from the support of all those who came to the mosque in the last couple of days and showed solidarity. It truly was a magnificent turnout. It is attitudes like yours that help shine light on grim days like the 15th March.
To fight extremism and terrorism by all possible means, Bath Islamic Society decided to start an open-day initiative, for residents and visitors of Bath to come and explore the Muslim community. Also we will have some vigil to remember the victims of the Christchurch shootings. Therefore, the mosque will be open from 1 pm till 4 pm on Saturday 23th March. You’re most welcome to come and join us.
Imam Mohammed Gamal Abdelnour
