Hyderabad: ‘Visit My Mosque’ and Id Milap, organised by the city unit of the Students Islamic Organisation (SIO), at Azizia Masjid in Mehdipatnam, evoked good response. Open to people of all faiths, the event, which had a turnout of 200 persons, was aimed at dispelling misconceptions with regard to Islam and its practices, the organisers said.
SIO volunteers and mosque committee members took the visitors to various sections of the mosque like wazu khanu (ablution centre), where they were told of the ritual of ablution which is mandated before every prayer.
At the main prayer hall, they were explained about the ritual of azaan (call for prayer) and namaz.
