Ep 12: Mosque to the Future
May 3rd, 2020 by Sacred Texts Syllabus
We are back with another exciting and informative episode of Conversations! Today we are joined by Ashfaque (or 'Ash' as he is fondly known by his friends). Ash is a former senior police officer with 30 years service, and has worked tirelessly for many years supporting his local masjid (al-Medina Moque, Barking) to stay relevant, become more self sufficient, and now in the midst of crisis, to be accessible.
We talk about what Ash has learnt about the Muslim community from his 30 years in policing, how masjids have been coping over the last 6 weeks of lock down, and importantly his opinion on what the future holds for mosques nationally.
