We received this beautiful card and message from a kind soul who thought it important to reach out and show support to the Muslim Community.

We are extremely grateful and humbled every time we receive messages of support in difficult times. The wider Edinburgh Community is so diverse, welcoming and open minded that we are proud to be a part of it, and proud to call it home.

To our dear friend, who sent this lovely card, we had no return address but hope you may see our response via our social media and website – we’d love to meet you and welcome you into the Mosque.
