Hala Sultan Tekke, Larnaca - Extended opening for 5 daily prayers
Petition Created On: 06 Mar, 2013
Petition Created By: Diane Akbar
We the undersigned are showing our support for the religious freedom of worship for Muslims in the Republic of Cyprus. The Hala Sultan (Umm Haram) Tekke standing next to the salt lake just south of Larnaca is one of the first sights you see heading out of the airport. According to legend, Prophet Muhammad's (SAW) paternal aunt, accompanying her husband on an Arab raid on Cyprus in 649, was attacked by Byzantine forces here, fell from her mule, broke her neck and was buried on the spot. A shrine was later built by Sheikh Hassan in A.D 1760 at the same place. The mosque was constructed in its present form around A.D 1816/17 and is the fourth most important holy site in the world for Muslims. This petition has been started to show just how much local and international interest and support there is for our effort to persuade to the Government of Cyprus Antiquities Department, to extend the opening times of the beautifully restored building further in order to include the 5 daily prayer times for those Muslims wishing to attend at this site. Thank you for helping us in the journey to return this beautiful building to its original purpose!
