Imran Kotwal  visits Year 1


This week Imran Kotwal came to visit us in year one. He talked to us about Islam and what it means to be a Muslim.

He brought in different artefacts for us to look at including a prayer mat and the Qur’an. We learnt that Muslims pray five times a day and they need to take off their shoes when they pray. He also taught us the five pillars of Islam which are: Belief, Prayer, Charity, Fasting and Pilgrimage.

Imran read a section of the Qu’ran to us and he told us that Muslims start reading the Qu’ran from the back not the front. He also closed the Qu’ran and read to us without looking at it because he had memorised every word of it!

We then designed our own prayer mat after looking at the ones Imran had brought in to show us.

We had a great morning listening to Imran and learning about Islam. Here are some pictures of us with the different artefacts.
