Multifaith Pilgrimage for Peace

The West London Islamic Centre welcomed over 30 mutlifaith pilgrims on Saturday the 6th June. Over breakfast, the visitors were given an introduction to the centre by the Mosque’s Imam Inayatullah alongside the visiting Imam Dr Imran Alawiye, who gave a short and light-hearted talk on the shared traditions of faith, such as accent to prayer, commitment to family, contemplation of being & self-improvement and caring for ones neighbours.

Founded by Brother Daniel Faivre and currently chaired by Brother Jon Dal Din, the Westminister Interfaith group was established in 1981, to create a forum where people of different faiths could meet on a monthly basis, exchange information, visit each other's places of worship and exchange good wishes on religious festivals.

Organised annually by Westminister Interfaith, the  multifaith pilgrimage offers people a rare opportunity to meet people of different faiths and experience their worship and hospitality but it is also a time for sharing, reflecting and praying.

This year the pilgrimage began from three different points in London. This was planned in order to visit some of the smaller places of worship that have often been missed. Places vsited included the Zoroastrian Centre in Rayners Lane, London Central Mosque, Holloway Interfaith Chaplaincy, Friends of the Western Bhuddist, Sackhand Nanak Dham International, the Sri Lankan Muslim Cutural Centre & Mosque, Brent Sikh Centre and the West Ealing Hindu Centre.

The Prophet (pbuh) said, 'Righteousness is good morality, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul and which you dislike people finding out about.' [Related in Muslim]
