Maidenhead mosque broadcasts call to prayer on Sunday for first time

Maidenhead mosque has broadcasted the symbolic call to prayer today - but the doors of the mosque remain closed to members. 

Saghir Ahmed, chairman of the Islamic Trust in Maidenhead, said that the broadcast would provide 'much solace' to the community during a challenging time. 

Mosques up and down the country have remained closed during the pandemic. 

  

Councillor David Coppinger, lead member for Maidenhead, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to help. It has been a very difficult and challenging Ramadan and I hope the call to prayer brings some comfort to our residents.”

The call to prayer took place at 1.30pm and lasted approximately five minutes but no prayers were held in the building due to social distancing rules.

Saghir said: “I am grateful to Councillor Coppinger for allowing us to broadcast the Adhaan, it provides much solace to our community during what has been a challenging time.”
