The Visit My Mosque Program, a unique interfaith initiative involving opening up mosques for visitors of other faiths was held at Akbar Mosque in Colombo on 26th of March, 2017. The public ‘Open Mosque Day’ was the first of its kind and was an immense success with nearly 100 visitors participating to learn about Islam and the role of mosques. Visitors were also offered free calligraphy of their names in beautiful Arabic script and traditional Muslim foods among other things.

Asiff Hussein, Vice President, Outreach, Centre for Islamic Studies, which organized the program in association with the Trustees of Akbar Mosque, said that the event was the first of its kind in Sri Lanka and follows the example of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) who hosted a delegation of Christians from Najran in his mosque in Medina. He added that they planned to have similar events in the near future.

    What we really need is from the mussies to stop multiplication. Not these gimmicks to hoodwink people from
    other faiths. Mussies used this dirty trick of multiply and multiply and outnumber the natives to rob countries
    from the natives wherever they went.

    Used in
    old Buddhist
    This is not my theory. Google Buddhist heritage in those countries and see for yourself. Mussies say yapila
    maathiya yemada koranawa and do exactly what they want. Crafty mussies stop multiplication! It only leads to
    bloodshed in modern world since people quickly get to know what is happening thanks to tv, internet etc. Olden
    days you don’t what is happening 25 miles from you. Now it is completely different.

    You see
    how mussies killing each other, killing people from other faiths daily basis. The reason? Too many mussies in
    their own counties and wherever they settled down. Too many people means too many problems!

    Read Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. It is a theory accepted the world over. It gives a hint which religion is the
    right one. Following the wrong religion, accrue more sins. It is like going on the wrong road to where you want to be. On the wrong road, you’ll never reach where you want to be!

    Google Charles Darwin’s Tree of Life theory.
