Medina Mosque Open day
Medina Mosque held an open day on Saturday - to celebrate the life of the Prophet of Islam, Mohammad - which coincided with the month Prophet Mohammad was born.
The event was attended by Mayor Ian Duckworth, MP Tony Lloyd and a number of councillors.
Guests were given a tour of the mosque and had an opportunity to ask questions.
A spokesperson said: "Exhibition materials highlighted the message of building a strong, stable and just society that Mohammad brought to the world and its relevance in today’s society. Other materials highlighted the contributions Islam has made throughout human history which have resulted in the many technological advancements we see today.
"The exhibition aimed to remove many of the misconceptions that exists in society today regarding Islam and Muslims. Having open and frank engagement with different communities is the only way to remove misunderstandings about Islam."
Councillor Shakil Ahmed said: “It was a very informative event which allowed people to understand the Islamic faith and allowed people of different backgrounds to share their views.”
