    A recitation from the Quran took place on 6 January in St Mary’s Cathedral of the Scottish Episcopal Church. The person reading from the Quran was a young woman named Madinah Javed, and she uploaded a video of the reading on her Facebook-page, later shared by the cathedral on their page.

    “It was an honour to recite Qur’an in the beautiful St Mary’s Cathedral and meet such a lovely and kind-hearted community, alhamdulilah”, Madinah Javed wrote as a caption to her video.

    The cathedral has even provided a written translation.

      I saw a disgusting video of Islamic terrorists beheading Christians in the middle east in a brick square – and THAT is what was being played over their loud-speaker as they did it. Welcome to the Christian Church!??

      none of us are perfect ,we are all struggling.it may be of value to hear the words,i;m sure they are innocent,although they may,as more familiar scripture to us,may be misused in a different context,Mr,Martin had a negative experience with these words,so his hearing may be somewhat tainted,whereas this is my first experience n find it holy,especially in this context.i am not fond of Islam,n have no real respect for it;s founder,but i do love People n realize this faith plays a valuable function in their lives.,

      I’m Catholic, so I really don’t know the laws of any Protestant religion and church. So please, correct me if I’m wrong, by isn’t this sacrilegious? By both religions?

      These foolish clerics allowed this blasphemy to happen in a Christian Church. Wrong;Wrong;Wrong.
