South west Londoners were invited to break their fast with members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community this week.

The open day last night, (June 21), was held at Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden. Opened in 2003, it is one of the largest mosques outside the Islamic world.

Muslims are currently fasting for Ramadan, the holy month of prayer for the religion. Members of the mosque invited members of the local community to join them for Iftari, the breaking of the fast, at 9.21pm.

Baitul Futuh Mosque also has its own 24-hour radio station, TV studio providing a live feed of Friday prayers, and space for the wider community to meet. It regularly hosts visitors and welcomes people from the community to find out more about their charitable work.

Many Londoners will remember the community's presence at the London Bridge vigil after the June 3 terror attack as they wore T-shirts with the slogan: "I am a Muslim, ask me anything."

Speaking to the group gathered in the mosque last night, Imam Tahir Khalid took the time to condemn to recent atrocities, and reiterate the religion's message of peace and unity.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was founded in India 1889. Since then, the community has spread to 174 countries, with 200 million followers around the world.
