Asalamu Aleykum wa rahmutallahi wa barakatuh.
Dear Sheikh Okasha Kameny
It is your brother in islam, Siad Dahir Ali from Denmark. I’m writing to you, simply, because i’m your greatest fan. I, myself, is an imam of a masjid called Salsabil in Aarhus, which was established 2012. In the beginning we lacked people, both with regards to management, but also visitors in general. Though this was a very difficult period, we never really stopped praying for a brighter future for the mosque, and because of our Sabr, Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala rewarded us by accepted our prayer, and for that, we will remain eternally greatful.
Two years went by before the people started coming. But when that finally happened, more youngsters began coming to the masjid, and engaging in the activities. They asked, of me wether i would begin a course for them. So I began a course regarding the biography of the prophet, in other words, I started to teach them seerah. This course was on for a very long time, and during that time there was a young brother that converted in the masjid. Till this day, today, he is a very active member of the masjid, infact he is a boardmember.
From 2014 till early 2016, there has been approximately 40 who has converted in the mosque, and the number, only seems to increase with time. Also, we have gotten new rooms in which we expect many activities to unfold. Due to the additional rooms we expect a lot more people to be engaging in the activeties of the mosque, such as lectures, courses, workshops etc.. On this occasion, we would like to ask you if it is possible for you to come and visit us this upcoming Ramadan, where you will be giving lectures, durus, khutbahs and lastly, leading the prayers, amongst those includes taraweeh and tahajud.
The center is managed by 7 young men from different nationalities as well as different background, all of which, is highly educated, but chose to come together for the sake of Allah and to once establish islam in this city. What we are asking of you, dear sheikh, is to allow us the great opportunity to meet and greet you, and for you to take part of an experience that might be the one that leads you into paradise. We do expect you to respond within a short amount of time. Your participation will be greatly appreciated and rewarded. Thanks for taking your time to read this.
On behalf of Masjid Salsabil, and imam Siad Dahir Ali.
