Mr Usman Shariff, Secreatary, Jumma Masjid Trust Board

The event organized by the Masjid trust board under the leadership of Mr. Usman Shariff saw a gathering of 100s of people from different parts of Bengaluru to witness the same. Masjid Darshan is a progressive step. The main agenda behind this Masjid Darshan was to showcase to the people of other communities what happens behind the closed doors of the masjid and what a masjid as a building or as a monument comprise of.

People from different communities visited the masjid and witnessed the beauty of the monument, watched the namaz being performed live, took part in a guided masjid tour, and enjoyed the scenic beauty of the surroundings.

The guided masjid tour included an explanation of the different parts of the masjid and how namaz is performed, a live Quran recitation stall where anyone could hear the Quran recitation, free Quran distribution stalls in different languages, an exhibition that had standees that explained about different terminologies like Jihad and Hijab which are very controversial in contemporary times. On display were the standees that spoke about different aspects of the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), landmark events in his life, and his family among others. The standees also beautifully decoded the timeline of the Muslim civilization, explaining certain aspects of what subjects like education, township, health, and others stood for in Islam.

Today when the Muslim community stands against prejudices and questions, an event like MD acts like a bridge to convey the effective message of what the community and the religion stand for and also conveys ideals of brotherhood, fraternity, and equality.

Prior to this, a masjid darshan was seen at the Bilal Masjid on Bannerghatta Road and we are hopeful that more Masjid Darshan will be witnessed in the city of Bengaluru.
