New Renovation Phase
On 4th March, a meeting was held in the Mosque with the Monument department, DSD organization and the Architect’s Office. It was decided to begin renovation of the interior of the Mosque in mid-April. Details were discussed and we hope to get financial assistance from the organizations we applied to. Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, renovation work may be delayed.

Into the fold of Islam
On 16th March, Mr. Christoph Kückner took shahada and came into the fold of Islam. The basic teachings of Islam and the AAIIL were explained to him and he was presented with Islamic literature. He offered his first salat with us, and was given the Islamic name Shiraz. Members are requested to pray that may Allah help him live the life of a true muslim, ameen.
From 16th March, mosques and all places of worship have been closed down for all activities. We have arranged online Friday prayer service for worshipers. People from Germany and other countries are benefiting from this service.
