The new mosque opens in Tirana
The mufti of Tirana, Lauren Luli, together with the mayor of the Municipality of Tirana, Erion Veliaj and dozens of believers in the area, opened the doors of the new mosque on "Hamdi Cullaj" street.
Mayor Veliaj congratulated the believers and said that whoever builds a mosque helps an entire area, that in the day of need, be it disaster or emergency situation, they find shelter, hope and love.
"I am glad that the mosque opens in the holy month of Ramadan. Being a city, being a municipality, is connected to the mosque, especially Tirana, which was born from the construction of the mosque. I greatly appreciate the contribution of the brothers who serve from corner to corner. When the earthquake happened, a large part of people who felt very worried, endangered, gathered in the mosque, because they felt faith, joining with others to pass a difficult moment. During the time of the pandemic, most mosques in Tirana turned into canteens for those who were lonely, who could not leave the house", underlined Veliaj.
The mayor expressed his gratitude to all those who have contributed to people in need, not only during the holy month of Ramadan.
"I want to thank with all my heart those who have contributed, either with the construction of the mosque, or with the small decorations; you have all my gratitude and the great God's rewards", said Veliaj.
The mufti of Tirana, Lauren Luli, said: "Today is one of those blessed and joyful days, which not only coincide with the prosperous month of Ramadan, but it is the joy that the opening of this mosque brings us, one of those dozens of hundreds of mosques which serve not only Muslim believers, but everyone".
