Friday Prayers at Kilbirnie Mosque
Friday Prayers at Kilbirnie Mosque tomorrow will be especially poignant, being exactly one week since the terrorist massacre in the Christchurch mosques.
The mosque is expecting a huge congregation of Muslims, but also many people of other faiths and of no particular faith.
Several groups from other faiths will be conducting their own interfaith prayers and vigils alongside the mosque.
In a symbolic act of solidarity, a human chain of volunteers is being created to protect the Muslims praying inside the mosque. They will stand in place from 1.15pm until the last Muslim has left the mosque.
Parts of surrounding streets will be closed so anyone planning to attend should park some way off or use public transport.
Mosque president Tahir Nawaz has asked people to leave the mosque after prayers in a way that does not create congestion on the surrounding streets.
