Our mosque’s Friday guests, a surprise awaiting us at the sermon today. The kitty has found the heart of compassion and mercy…

Mustafa Efe, the imam of Aziz Mahmud Hüdayi Mosque in Istanbul, has opened up his doors to the local homeless cats who need shelter from the cold Turkish winter. The congregation has also taken to the feline refugees and have gladly made them part of their daily life and the cats have made themselves quite at home.

Have Mercy
“Be merciful to those on the earth and the One above the heavens will have mercy upon you”
