At the end of the eighth season, 60 people received certificates of teaching the basics of Islam.
The meeting took place in a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Imam-khatyb of the “Gaila” mosque Rustam Khazrat Khairullin drew the attention of the audience to the concept of “foundation” in a person’s life: foundation, this will be the final result. The foundation of a Muslim is faith, ”he said. Hazrat spoke about the basic tenets of Islam, shared instructive events from the history of Islam, and also revealed the secrets of making dua, answered questions and urged the shakirds to continue to acquire knowledge, and if they feel a lack of knowledge on a particular issue, contact knowledgeable imams.
The “One Day School” project allowed the participants to quickly and effectively master the skills of reading namaz and the basics of Islam in 8 lessons – one per week. In addition, the listeners learned about the basics of Islam, aqidah, the sire of our beloved Prophet ﷺ, learned the culture of making dua, studied the issues of halal and haram.
