Miraj Night enthusiasm experienced in Bağlar Neighbourhood Mosque

Kinsmen from Western Thrace came together in the mevlit programmes held in mosques and celebrated the Night of Miraj together and with enthusiasm.

One of the places where the enthusiasm of Miraj Night was experienced was the Baglar Neighbourhood Mosque of Komotini.

On the meaningful night, Turkish Consul General in Komotini Aykut Ünal, President of the Consultative Committee of the Turkish Minority of Western Thrace (BTTADK) and Mufti of Komotini İbrahim Şerif did not leave the cognates who filled the mosque by attending the mevlit programme organised by the Mufti's Office of Komotini alone.

With the call to prayer, the kinsmen in the mosque performed the Isha prayer together.

After the prayer, İbrahim Şerif, Mufti of Komotini, gave a sermon to the congregation before the mevlit programme.

In his sermon, he talked about the Isra - Miraj event and the good news given to mankind on this blessed night. Mufti İbrahim Şerif stated that the Night of Miraj is a night in which the Prophet (SAW) experienced many miracles and explained to the cognates how this night should be spent and which worships can be performed.

After the Mufti, Consul General of Komotini Aykut Ünal, who attended the mevlit programme and left the cognates alone, took the floor and made a speech.

Consul General Ünal started his speech by greeting the compatriots and expressing his happiness to be with them. He congratulated their Miraj Night. In the continuation of his speech, one year ago on 6 February 2023, on the occasion of the first anniversary of the "Disaster of the Century" of the two major earthquakes in the motherland Turkey on 6 February 2023, which caused great destruction in a total of 11 provinces centred in Kahramanmaraş, where more than 50 thousand citizens lost their lives, he once again thanked the compatriots who did not leave the state of the motherland Republic of Turkey alone and did not withhold their help from the earthquake victims. He said that the efforts of the Western Thracian Turks were an exemplary behaviour for solidarity.

While concluding his speech, the Consul General asked his compatriots not to forget the victims of the earthquakes in their prayers

Then the mawlid programme started. The religious officials of the Muftiate of Komotini recited Ashr-i Sharif, hymns and Mevlid-i Sharif.

The programme ended with the prayer of Mevlid-i Sharif recited by Mufti İbrahim of Komotini.
