King’s College students visit the Islamic Centre

A Group of University students from King’s College visited the Islamic Centre of England on the 28th of October 2010.
The group composed of young students (men and women) of anthropology and sociology, attended the Islamic Centre of England during the performance of Du’a Kumeil. A regular supplication recited on Thursday evenings at the Mosque. After the supplication they were invited to the library hall for a lecture on the origins of Shi’a Islam by our educational officer Amir De Martino. The students who had already some background knowledge of Islam were interested in seeing the community during a live ritual and to understand the fundamental differences that exists between the two major schools of Islamic thought, namely Shia and Sunni.
The students showed also an interest to know the reasons that motivated the lecturer to convert to Islam more than 20 years ago.
