With the ongoing pandemic happening, drastic measures had to be taken to ensure that the spread of Covid-19 can be controlled. One of the most effective ways is to practice social distancing. This, however, has created issues with the availability of space, especially in places of worship.

As a sign of goodwill, a church in Berlin has opened its doors to Muslims as their mosque cannot cope with the numbers, given the new social distancing rules.

As reported by BBC, the Dar Assalam mosque in Neukolln, Germany, could only handle just a fraction of its total congregation. Fortunately, Martha Lutheran church in Kreuzberg has offered to assist the Muslim community by allowing them to host Friday prayers. The imam of Dar Assalam mosque said,

“It is a great sign and it brings joy in Ramadan and joy amid this crisis. This pandemic has made us a community. Crises bring people together.”

We do believe this act of kindness exists even in Malaysia. However, we really need to brave enough to go against the grain, to prove that at the end of the day, no religion teaches us to hate.
