Thanks for giving us such an engaging and well organised visit to the mosque last week. The whole morning was pitched perfectly for the children to absorb what they were learning and they all really enjoyed the experience.

The children and staff got so much our of the visit and we thought that your presentation was very interesting. The opportunity for our children to ask questions was so worthwhile and we were taken back by the depth and breath of their minds. You clearly provided a platform which enabled the children to feel open and relaxed to express their curiosity.

Thank you so much for your warm welcome, the generosity of your time and your careful, honest and insightful responses to our questions on Monday. I can honestly say that the whole group thoroughly enjoyed our visit and everyone came away full of enthusiasm, respect and inspiration which I’m sure they will share with their own school communities and all those they work with.

We were delighted to be able to visit Masjid E-Noor Mosque as part of or RE topic exploring Islam. The pre-trip organisation and communication with mosque was excellent. The whole morning was engaging as well as being really informative with well-chosen activities which enabled the children to gain an insight into the Muslim faith. We found the delivery from Imam Hassan really gained the children’s attention and focus whilst providing an excellent awareness of what it is like for an Islamic child growing up in Britain.

Thank you so much for an excellent morning.

Your teaching activities had a really positive effect on the children and their behaviour as well as being inspirational about Islam. I think that you were a great role model, especially for some of the boys in the class, and all the children enjoyed the experience immensely.

I wanted to share a huge thank you to you for our visit today. My Year 11 students had a wonderful experience at the Mosque, your talk was fantastic, and they really enjoyed performing Wudu. They’re a really quiet bunch and the fact that many of them felt comfortable asking questions shows how at ease you made them throughout the trip. 
 
On behalf of all of us, we all wanted to thank you for the wonderful meal that your friends provided for us.

Thanks to Imam Hassan of Masjid e Noor for reaching out to business, charity, public service & media. Much has been done by many in our city for greater community cohesion, but nothing taken for granted. We’ll all keep working for a city & county with strong partnerships.

GITEP PGCE Student Teachers

I would like to say a big thank you for allowing our Scouts to visit your Mosque. They all enjoyed the tour and were thoroughly engaged at all-times, especially when they had the opportunity to do the Wudhu (the practice of washing before prayer), the dressing up and doing the prayer at the end. The list of names, of some of the Scouts written in Arabic, is now up on our Scout board for all to see at our hut. Our Cub Scouts now want to come visit after hearing how the Scouts enjoyed themselves

Compliments have been flowing in from WI members after their visit to the Mosque. “Excellent,

fantastic, so welcoming and friendly, questions readily answered even the awkward ones,

interesting and informative, we learned so much”. Nearly four hundred WI members, plus some

husbands, from all parts of Gloucestershire were made to feel extremely welcome by the Imam

and members of the visiting team, including four lovely ladies, during the four visits. Members

were fascinated to learn about the Islamic faith, the history of the Mosque and the quiz answers

helped dispel many myths. However, it was the insight into the Muslim faith from a women’s

point of view that fascinated us all, as the many questions from the floor proved. We are so

grateful to all the team for giving of their time so generously.
