Erdoğan inaugurates newly-restored Ayazma Mosque
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan inaugurated the newly-restored Ayazma Mosque in the Üsküdar district of Istanbul.
“I would like to commemorate with mercy everyone who has made an effort to keep this monument alive, from Sultan Mustafa 3, the founder of Ayazma Mosque, which adds value to our city with its architecture, location and many features. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the restoration of the mosque”, Erdoğan said at the inauguration ceremony.
Citing the verse of Holy Quran that says, “The mosques of Allah should only be maintained by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day, establish prayer, pay alms-tax, and fear none but Allah,” Erdoğan said: I wish that the adhans to be read five times a day, the prayers to be performed and the prayers to be recited at the Ayazma Mosque will be accepted by Allah.” (ILKHA)
