Local artist, and William Morris Big Local partnership member, Rezia Wahid has come up with the great idea of putting a picture of a mosque in your window during Ramadan.
Rezia says, “One of the most important parts of Ramadan is the tarawee (night) prayer, which is traditionally performed in mosques. This will be immensely missed by those who observe it.”
Putting a mosque in your window is a small way of marking Ramadan, while visits to an actual mosque are not possible. Rezia has created a template for you to download, which can be coloured in or cut out, and otherwise decorated. The one above was designed by Rezia’s talented daughter, Halima.Share This
