Thiruvananthapuram: The trustees of Vadi Hira Masjid and Masjidul Azha in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday opened the mosque and also took care of their food as more than 1000 students from the neighbouring Tamil Nadu wrote National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET 2018) - a compulsory entrance exam for admission to various medical courses.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducted NEET 2018 on Sunday at 2,255 exam centres in 136 cities. Some 1200 students from Tamil Nadu were allotted Sivagiri School and Chalakkal Amal Public School centres. To help the parents who were waiting in scorching heat outside the school as their wards wrote the exam, the trustees opened the mosques and also provided for their food.
The inspiring moments are shared by Abdul Rahoof Ibn Raheem, an activist, on his facebook page.
This is consecutively for the second year that the Vadi Hira Masjid trustees opened their arms for the waiting parents. This year however the Vadi Hira Masjid trustees were more prepared and they were also joined by Masjidul Azha which also opened its doors for the waiting parents, according to NDTV.
“This heart-warming incident of kindness provided several parents of wards who had gone inside the mosque with a new experience of human compassion”, the leading media group said in a report.
"Anything that may benefit the larger human goodness can be done within a mosque. This is a great thing about Islam," a representative of Masjidul Azhar which hosted the waiting parents told Manorama News.
