Eid-ul-Fitr at the Berlin Mosque, 17 July 2015
Report and photographs
by Amir Aziz, Imam Berlin Mosque
Eid festival went very well at the Berlin Mission. It was Friday and despite the fact that it was not a holiday, Eid was well attended. The Eid message sent from Lahore by Hazrat Ameer Dr A.K. Saeed, Head of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement, was my Eid Khutba (sermon). Explanation was given in English and its translation in German was read out. Everyone appreciated it.
People from the following countries attended the Eid prayer: Germany,
Most people left for their jobs after Eid, but a party and food was arranged for all. Food was brought by many families. All families and children and other participants stayed in the Mission house till Friday Prayer. It was a good picnic today.
Friday was as usual well attended and the mosque was full. I am sending some photos (although they were not taken professionally and are not the best they could have been).
