Year 5 visit Southampton Mosque

On 9th May Year 5 visited Southampton Mosque. We met an Imam who was very friendly and kind. We learnt that Muslims are not allowed to drink alcohol under any circumstance. All Muslims believe in Allah. This is Allah in Arabic. Muslims believe in lots of prophets such as Muhammed, Jesus and David. We learned LOTS of interesting facts such as Muslims are not allowed to eat pork because it was forbidden in The Holy Qur’an.

At the mosque there is a men’s prayer room and women’s prayer room. Instead of going to church on Sundays, like Christians, Muslims go to the mosque on Fridays.
