Nikah from 1928

There was a historic moment for the Berlin Mosque as the grandson and great-grandson of Dr. Khawja Abdul Hamied specially visited us from Bombay (India).. Dr. Khawja was the first person who recited Quran in this Mosque on the inauguration ceremony of the Mosque. He got married in the Mosque in 1928, and through his Nikah papers his family was able to locate the Mosque and visited on Eid. See the photographs below.
