Sheikh Suliman Gani of Tooting Islamic Centre invited Revd Dr Andrew Davey of St Augustine’s Church to mark the International Day of Peace at Friday Prayers, Salaatul-Jumu’a, on 21 September.

Over three thousand marked the International Day of Peace at Tooting Islamic Centre, London.

They exchanged greetings of peace.  Imam Gani’s khutbah, or sermon, and Dr Davey’s five-minute talk were both on the subject of peace,  of the importance of Muslims, Christians and others living together in harmony and of following their respective faith convictions and beliefs.

Over three thousand people attended.
