Muslim community opens its doors to the public

WHAT do you do behind those closed doors?

That was the most popular question local Muslims received from inquisitive residents who walked through the doors of Dubbo’s mosque over the weekend.

The Kotku Masjid opened its doors to the public for its first open day and organisers hailed the event as a great success.

Ibrahim Abu Eissa travelled from Sydney to help out local Muslims direct residents through the mosque and answer questions.

Mr Eissa said the church turned place of worship proved to be the highlight of the day.

“People had no idea what to expect when they walked inside,” he said.

“There was a massive curiosity to what happens inside the mosque.”

Inside the small mosque, carpets filled the place with no chairs in sight as Arabic words adorned the walls.
