Next, we went to Centre of Islamic Studies (North Road). We looked through the books at their library. Then, we were showed the masjid and wudu area. The masjid was small and very simple. In terms of the architecture, the students could compare how one (masjid e Qadriyah) was elegant, beautiful and huge and other (CIS) was simple and small. We talked about the requirement for a masjid - it's not the minaret or the chandellier or the size. It's the activities that it holds - education for all groups - muslims, non muslims, and young and old, salah, tarbiyah - it's a centre for muslim activity.
Alhamdulillah, it was a beneficial trip. Jazak Allah for the administration and the teachers that made it possible!
