Have you ever seen Salah (Prayer) in action? This Muslim Prayer is performed five times a day by millions of people all over the world
LONDON – A new video published by The Londonist has given people an insight into the London Centeral Mosque in Regent’s Park.
The video was shot during prayer or Salah, which Muslims observe five times a day.
London Central Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre is deemed a center point for Muslim worship in London and a landmark of the faith in Britain.
The founding fund for the mosque started in 1910, and the Government under Winston Churchill offered the site as its location in the 1940s in recognition of the importance of Islam in an increasingly multi-cultural society.
However, the building’s construction, which combined British modernism with traditional Islamic architectural styles and has a prayer hall which can hold several thousand worshippers, a golden dome, and a 44m high minaret, didn’t start until 1970 and was completed seven years later.
Muslims pray five times a day, with each prayer made of a series of postures and movements, each set of which is called a rak‘ah.
The five prayer times are divided all through the day which starts with Fajr prayer at dawn.
