Thursday, June 05, 2008
A foundation stone for a new mosque at Brufut Lower Basic School was recently laid by Alhagie Kebba Sheriff Hydara, Kaliph of the Hydara families in The Gambia.
The mosque, with a dimension of 11m by 10m, is a self help project initiated by the school through its Islamic conferences and donations organised by the staff and students of the school.
Speaking shortly before the laying of the foundation block, the Kaliph of the Hydara families in The Gambia, Alhagie Kebba Hydara, used the occasion to pray for continued peace and stability in the country. He urged the muslim Ummah to be united and work as one family, noting that islam is a religion born with tolerance and obedience.
He described unity as a fundamental principle of islam. He then prayed for progress and prosperity of the project and seek for Allah's blessings it.
The ceremony was attended by the Alkalo of Brufut, Alh Yunusa Sano, religious leaders, as well as members of the Brufut community. The food vendors of the school provided the feeding during the ceremony as part of their contribution towards the event.
