Visit to the Ottawa Mosque

On the  26th of May of 2013 the "Getting to Know Our Neighbour's Faith" small group from the Ottawa Mennonite Church visited the Ottawa Mosque. We were welcomed by Imam Samy Metwally. We heard about the basic beliefs of Islam. And we had a good conversation after. We learned that one of the pillars of Islam is charity. And we learned that our Muslim brothers and sisters are also actively working within the society. We also heard beautiful stories of inter-faith dialogue and action with our Muslim brothers and sisters.
