MASJID IS NOT JUST A PLACE OF WORSHIP

Inside India

The Muslims in Masjide Azizia in Humayun Nagar, Hyderabad begs were in for a surprise on 5 July when they saw speakers waxing eloquent about the changing trends in education. They listened with rapt attention to the importance of skill development, spoken English and the employability factor.” There is no difference between the spiritual and worldly knowledge. If the latter is acquired with the intention of benefiting mankind, it also amounts to fulfilling the religious obligation,” says Aijaz Mohiuddin Waseem, Khateeb of the mosque. With the academic year having just begun, the Students Islamic Organisation of India, Hyderabad, organised a symposium on Our approach towards education for the benefit of Muslim youth. “General trend is to memorise some answers just before the exams and somehow pass. We want to instil the real concept of education,” says Farhan Sumbul of the SIO. “Masjid is not just a place of worship but also a centre for looking into the general well-being of the community,” remarked Abdul Majeed, a parent, welcoming the initiative.
