Jamia Mosque holds Iftar get-together with journalists
Udupi: The Jamia Mosque Udupi organised an Iftar get-together with journalists from the city limits on Monday, June 27 evening at the Mosque premises.
The programme began with the recitation of the holy Quran by Abdul Rasheed Nadwi.
In his Ramzan message, Akbar Ali said that the purpose of fasting is not only about avoiding food and water but to achieve total control over the body, mind and soul. “Such self-control is believed to lead a person to spiritual self-purification and total submission to the will of God,” he said.
It offers every Muslim an opportunity to purify their heart and soul and to remove the evil effects of the sins committed by them.
Jayakar Suvarna (president of Udupi District Working Journalists’ Association), Astro Mohan (senior Photo Journalist) and Janardhan Kodavoor (Team member of Mangalorean.com) addressed the gathering and wished everyone ‘Eid Mubarak’ in advance.
Mosque president Sayyad Yaseen, member Mohammed Mowla, Yaser Akram and others were present.
