The mosque is a marvellous place! Everyone comes together to pray here. What a wonderful place visited by lots of people and lots of angels all talking to Allah! Yes, we can talk to Allah anywhere, but the mosque is a special place where we can talk to Him. Talk about how a mosque is a building that has a dome and a minaret. When you hear the Adhaan, this is the lovely call Allah gives so we can all come together and talk to Him. When we are in the mosque, we have marvellous akhlaq. We have marvellous mosque akhlaq. We take off our shoes, speak gently and softly, we share space with everyone, talk to Allah and keep the mosque clean and beautiful.
Read Surat al Jinn, (72:18), ” And the mosques are for Allah, so do not call anyone with Allah.” Think about your heart in the marvellous mosque you visit. Think about how peaceful you feel.
