President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s wife Emine Erdoğan, visited Tokyo Camii while staying in Japan. About 110 people participated in the program between Mrs. Emine and the Japanese Muslim women.
The program started with an opening speech by Yuki Atalay, a staff of Tokyo Camii, saying, “It is a great honor for us to have such a meeting with Mrs. Emine Erdoğan. She has been started and developed many social projects and “Zero Waste Project” is one of the most important projects that under the auspices of Mrs. Emine Erdoğan. Even if it seems to be unrelated to Islam but in fact, this earth exists by the grace of Allah and protect our environments is the duty of all Muslims. The effort and struggle for good things will become Ibadah. ”
After that, there was a warm welcome speech by Mrs. İnci Mercan, the wife of the Turkish Ambassador Mr. Hasan Murat Mercan, and then Mrs. Hülya Çavuşoğlu, the wife of the Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, she expressed her satisfaction with this meeting at Tokyo Camii.
Mrs. Emine Erdoğan said in her speech, “I am happy to be able to visit Japan, which is a friendly, brother-like country. The most effective response to Islamphobia is to practice the peace and tolerance religion of Islam in the best way possible.The right deeds along the holy Qur’an lead people to the truth and it’s like night-flying butterflies attracted to light.
Nobody can explain the greatness of Shahada except those who understand the basic meaning of it “There is no god except Allah” and live in that way.
In order to introduce Islam correctly, it is necessary to learn from the advancement of women’s status, the education of girls and experience in the field of Japanese technology. Because the strive for the common benefit of humanity is also an act of worship.”
Mrs. Emine Erdoğan was also toured recently opened Tokyo Cami Halal Market and was explained about Japanese halal food.
After the program, we received many comments from participants that they could spend valuable time and enjoyed such a wonderful meeting.
