For the Holy month of Ramadan the British Muslim Heritage Centre made arrangements for Taraweeh (Ramadan evening prayer). A crèche, iftars (evening fast breaking meal) were held every Saturday throughout the
month of Ramadan and every day during the last 10 days of Ramadan.
Up-to 700 people packed the Centre every evening to attend the Taraweeh prayers. The payers and Quran recitation were inspiringly led by Sheikh Ramza Rahman from Manchester and Sheikh Mustafa Salata from Egypt. Together they enabled us to have the pleasure of listening to their individual and unique styles of recitation, which we all agree was a most beautiful and fulfilling experience for all those who attended. On the day of Eid, families attended the two Eid prayers en mass. We estimate that at least 3,000 people attended the two Eid prayers.
