Open Day of European Monuments
12 – 13 September 2015
Report and photographs
by Amir Aziz, Imam Berlin Mosque
With the blessings of Allah, on the Open Day of European Monuments (12th and 13th September, 2015) our mosque was a hub of activities. In two days more than four hundred fifty visitors visited our mosque. I arranged a powerpoint presentation about the history of the AAIIL and Berlin Mosque. All visitors showed keen interest and appreciated our work. The Mosque was kept open from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm both days. On both days I had to repeat the presentation for new-comers more than twenty times.
Four hundred informative flyers were distributed among the visitors. One hundred and fifty copies of the book written by Syed Nasir Ahmad sahib about the history of Berlin Mosque were also distributed. Copies of the German translation of the Holy Quran were also distributed to those who showed interest.
A highlight of the event was that a family member of the late Amina Mosler also attended the programme. She is cousin of late Amina Mosler’s husband. She showed that she was wearing earrings of the late Amina Mosler.
(See last two photographs below.)
Amina Mosler was that brave, noble and devoted lady who organized the Mosque and Mission House during World War 2. She took care of the Mission House and Mosque for years during the most difficult time of the history of the mosque. It was the time when no one could be sent to Berlin to help in the Mission because of the war. This great lady kept the Mission and Mosque intact and open single with great devotion and sacrifice.
I am thankful to Mudassar Aziz who came from Holland to help me in organizing this great event.
