Imam of Kaunas mosque is leaving
Due to shortage of imams in Lithuania, imams from Turkey are already helping Lithuanian muslims communities for a long time. It is really noticed by those who are devoted to their prayers and attend the mosque frequently.
Currently few imams fully carry out religious ceremonies in Vilnius and Kaunas: mosques are opened for daily prayers, Friday prayers (Jumma), special festival prayers are organized, religious lessons for children are being held, etc. Community notices and happy that this contribution of such foreign imams, like Abdullah, expands religious activities, diversity and encourages occupancy, education and efficiency.
Since 2013 imam Abdullah Belge from Turkey was assigned to serve in Kaunas mosque. Kaunas is a city of students. Currently muslims majority here are students from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Lebanon, European countries who study in English. Thus, the main languages in the community are English, Arabic, Russian and Lithuanian. Despite large variety of languages imam Abdullah was able to find a common way to communicate, befriend everyone around and to solve religious issues in a constructive way with the help of community members.
Indeed, in the religion of Islam each believer is different only by his piousness and good deeds for the sake of Allah the Most High.
The Kaunas city muslim religious community is thankful to imam Abdullah Belge from Turkey for his service at the Kaunas mosque. Everybody is invited this Sunday, 2th of December at 05:30 pm to come to the prayer in congregation (Isha), to pray together and to spend some more time with imam before he leaves Lithuania.
Those who will not be able to come to the prayer, but would like to express personal gratitude to dear imam Abdullah, may send thank you note to this email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to convey.
Finally, we ask Allah to protect the reputation of good people from individuals causing stress and disunity.
