We are sending you this letter on behalf of the Muslim Union in Czech Republic. It is an organization registered by the Czech Ministry of Interior, since the year 2000.
Please, let us give you a brief note of our activities:
In year 1999, we began with a program of Dawa, in a small flat close to the center of Prague. This program leaded to embracing of Islam up to approximately 40 Czech youth.
For the necessity of having Islamic center in the city center and for the proximity to work places and schools and Czech seekers of Islam which is the main target of the center, specially the second generation of the Muslim community, we rented a place at Vaclavské Náměstí, in the middle of the year 2001. For the last 2 years it served the community as well as Dawa, spreading Islam. It began with 1 room, risen to 2, then 4 rooms and now we have 100 m2 praying room at the address Politickych věznů 21, till the mid of January 2004. Because the place will go through a reconstruction, we are forced to move out and find a new place which is needed for all our activities. As we are short of our financial support, we are afraid our activities and plans for spreading Islam will have to be stopped.
The activities the place offer are:
Jum’ah prayer, in Czech and English language at 14:30, every Friday. Many English speaking people from England, Pakistan and India pray every week as well as a number of Czech Muslims.
4 prayers a day, all week.
On Ramadan, every day, fasting is broken in a group of Muslims (last Ramadan 50-
Tarawih prayer was offered daily.
Our web page in Czech language www.muslimskaunie.cz offers the largest amount of information about Islam in Czech Republic.
Translating of books about Islam to Czech language.
we are planing to spread our activities to schools and doing dawa activites between students .
Other programs for Dawa such as trips, picnics and lectures.
.servise of weddings for Muslims .
We would be very happy to be honored by your visit or contacting us.
In behalf of the Muslim Union
