Corona situation has started to become normal in the countries of the world. Famous cities are also busy. The Portuguese port city of Porto is also busy now. As the Corona situation has returned to normal, the image of mosques run by expatriate Bangladeshis has changed. Every day, the time of Iftar and every prayer is becoming popular among the devotees. At the same time, the mosque precincts are being filled with queues at the moment of Iftar.
After two long years, Hazrat Hamza (R) Jame Mosque in Porto and the Central Mosque in Porto again witnessed the same festival of Muslims.
Bangladeshis come from different parts of Porto in the month of Ramadan because of the Hazrat Hamza (R) Mosque in Saubent of the Bangladeshi-run Porto Center. Iftar mahfil is organized in the mosque throughout the month. As a result, a different kind of festival is created.
On the occasion of Ramadan Iftar, a cordial relationship develops in the community, which bridges the gap of mind, increases intimacy, strengthens love, harmony and brotherhood. The month-long Iftar is attended by Muslims from India, Pakistan, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Asia, Africa and Europe.
Every day 250 to 300 devotees take part in Iftar in the mosque. Under the supervision of the mosque committee, people of different ages and professions break their fast with divine fascination in orderly and sincere hospitality. Due to the busy schedule of expatriates, iftar is often not made for expatriates without family members. So the expatriates rushed to the mosque. Join in the Iftar and Doa collectively in Qatar.
The Khatib of the mosque, Maulana Idris Khan, preaches daily before Iftar on the significance of Ramadan and various aspects of Islam. Mosharraf Hossain Kiran, Shah Alam Kajal, Abdul Alim, Md.
