Friday Prayers in the House of Lords

The holding of Friday Prayers in the House of Lords which was arranged by Lord Sheikh is continuing to be held when Parliament is in session. The congregation is made up of both men and women, and includes people who work in the Palace of Westminster, surrounding Government departments and other Muslims irrespective of Party affiliation. The prayers this week were led by Imam Hasan Ali of Palmers Green Mosque whose sermon included the acceptance of all people in Islam.

Omar Faruk is actively involved in the arrangements and renders considerable help in the organisation of the Prayers and periodically also leads the Prayers. In his sermons, Omar Faruk talks about the practical application of Islamic principles in our daily lives.
