North Rhine-Westphalia: Day of the Open Mosque under the motto "scarce resources"

Berlin/Cologne (dpa/lnw) - When many mosques in Germany open their doors to visitors again on October 3, the motto this time will be "scarce resources - great responsibility". This should raise awareness of the need for a sustainable and climate-friendly life, said the Central Council of Muslims (ZMD) on Monday for the upcoming Open Mosque Day (TOM). Combating climate change requires far-reaching structural changes and changes in behavior - including among Muslims, mosques and Muslim institutions, said ZMD chairman Aiman ​​Mazyek.

The TOM was launched on the ZMD initiative in 1997 - as a sign of belonging and solidarity on October 3rd, the day of German unity. Since 2007, the Coordination Council of Muslims (KRM) has been organizing the day, in which around 1,000 mosques throughout Germany take part every year, to promote getting to know each other and exchange between Muslims and non-Muslims.

In addition to the ZMD, five other associations now belong to the KRM, including Ditib (Cologne), Germany's largest Islamic organization. Around 5.5 million Muslims live in Germany. Of the federal states, the largest number by far live in North Rhine-Westphalia.
