Over the last few weeks Year 3 and 4 have visited a Mosque in Wellingborough to continue our learning about the Muslim faith Islam.
When we arrived we had to take our shoes off as a sign of respect and it keeps the Mosque clean. The gentleman told us about the 5 pillars of Islam. Hajj is when Muslims go on a pilgrimage to Mecca. Sawm is when Muslims do not eat or drink, known as fasting. He showed us where Mecca was and answered our questions.
Also he told us how many Muslims there are and how many Mosques there are. Some Muslims can’t fast because they are either under 12, ill or pregnant.
