Visiting the mosque of Kaunas
Recently we have noticed our society’s interest in Islam and we are glad to see the growth of their wish to learn about religion of Islam directly from the muslims. The visitors of Kaunas, as well as the citizens, have been discovering the mosque, located in Ramybes park, Totoriu street 6, and out of mere curiosity entering inside to look around. Latterly this mosque is opened every day during the times of the prayers, so the number of visitors is increasing. Everybody is welcome in the mosque and kindly greeted, as it is common in the muslims’ community.
Most of the times there is opportunity to have a live conversation with someone in the mosque, ask questions and get answers, or just share your own experiences of Islamic countries or situations with muslims involved, learn what islam is, what muslims believe in, how they practise and live in Lithuania. Mufti of Lithuania or his representative will always welcome you, listen, answer your questions and in case it is needed will advice you, for example about behaviour in certain situations which may be met in Islamic country, etc.
Moreover, different kind of Islamic literature is also distributed in the mosque and may be taken for yourself or sharing with your friends free of charge.
This autumn alone the mosque was visited by the students of different universities, who were willing to get more information about religious rituals in Islam, as well as by the group of tourists who were interested in the history of the mosque of Kaunas, Islamic heritage in Lithuania, family model in Islam and other subjects. Furthermore students of several schools of Kaunas had the possibility to complement their knowledge of Islam gained at school and check the reliability of information about Islam widespread in media by asking questions and getting answers directly from practising muslims. We are happy to see that close, honest and straight communication helps to build tolerant society and mutual understanding about other culture, religion and daily life as well as needs of its community.
We wish to invite for a visit all who wants to see the mosque of Kaunas or get to know our community. Contact and arrangement of the visit in advance is needed if you are planning to come in a larger group or you are seeking for a meeting with representatives of our community.
