On Wednesday 4th April, twelve students from the second year Level 3 Public Services course visited Birmingham Central Mosque. The mosque is the second purpose built mosque in the United Kingdom, which was built in 1969 and opened to the public in 1975. It is one of the most recognised religious buildings in the city of Birmingham and a result, a vast number of people visit the mosque every year.
The visit included:
The diversity involved in the local Muslim community and the openness of the followers of the faith in discussing their views and opinions, gave the learners a positive experience that broke down many preconceived barriers leaving the learners with a completely refreshed and better understanding of Islam.
