Impressions from the event in Kaunas mosque
When the Lithuanian weather is getting colder, cozy meetings warm the hearts of the Muslim people community.
In the event organized for women and children at the Kaunas Mosque on the first Friday of November there was no shortage of happy smiles, children’s laughter, feast and, of course, various activities.
The event was opened by the young member of the community Safiyah who recitated a few surahs from the Quran. Next came a reminder about a the biography of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.a.w.), his life, importance not only for the religion of Islam, but also the impact on the whole history of the world. After the official part of the event guests continued participating in various activities. Aistė, the head scarf designer adorned girls, showed various techniques of scarve binding and shared tips on how to adapt various forms or textures of headscarves and find a suitable option. Henna tattoo artist Andžela was busy as well. She patiently decorated women’s hands with impressive drawings during the entire event. It is necessary to mention the children’s creative corner “Dress Fathima and Abdullah“. There work was extremely busy! Children had fun coloring drawings in fancy colors and patterns. It’s good to see that the community is discovered by new members. All afternoon women chatted pleasantly, despite the language barrier and age differences. Just late in the evening women reluctantly, but in high spirits and smiles went home.
It was nice to meet guests from Klaipeda, women we had not seen for some time and new members. This quite large gathering shows that we have a united, friendly and active community. Let‘s hope that such events will be held in the future and we will be able to gather soon for such a great time again. Insha Allah!
