IKEA Germany Store Offers Car Park for Muslims `Eid Prayer

0 83

Hundreds of Muslims performed Eid prayer after an IKEA store near Frankfurt in west Germany handed over its car park to allow socially-distanced mass prayers.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Drone footage from the gathering on Sunday in Wetzlar, near Frankfurt, showed 800 worshippers praying together from a safe distance.

“The closing prayer with all Muslims in Wetzlar was like a reward for us,” a mosque chairman told BBC News.

Social media users shared pictures of the Eid prayer widely, with many complimenting the mosque for finding a safe way for the community to pray together and praising IKEA for the initiative.

The chairman of The Islamic Community Milli Goruş (IGMG) Wetzlar FATİH CAMİİ mosque, Kadir Terzi, approached Ikea last week without much expectations for a positive response.

“But the store manager didn’t hesitate for a second and said ‘yes, you can pray’. I was surprised and happy at the same time,” Terzi explained.
