Jummah Prayers in the House of Lords

The holding of Friday Prayers in the House of Lords which was arranged by Lord Sheikh is continuing to be held when Parliament is in session. The congregation is made up of both men and women, and includes people who work in the Palace of Westminster, surrounding Government departments and other Muslims irrespective of party affiliation. The prayers this week were led by Imam Hasan Ali of Palmers Green Mosque whose sermon included the acceptance and tolerance of all people in Islam. Omar Faruk is involved with the organisation of the Prayers and also sometimes leads the prayers himself.
