Hawzah News Agency (Sleaford, UK) – The local community of all faiths and cultures was invited to pay a visit, ask questions and develop a greater understanding of the religion and its practices.
On Sunday afternoon there were displays to view and members of the local Muslim community on hand to talk to visitors over tea and coffee at the prayer hall in Station Road.
Nadim Aziz, part of the Sleaford Muslim Community Association, said it went very well for a first time with a really good turnout keeping them busy for three and a half hours.
He thanked everyone for taking part and promoting the event, which he hoped next year would be bigger, within their larger mosque, once conversion work is finished behind their present building. Mr Aziz said there were councillors, police and other church leaders among the visitors, as well as several local charity representatives, all asking questions on a variety of aspects.
