The Imam was identified as Osama Bounasab who would lead prayers at the Al-Rahmah Mosque in Tarka town. After the Eid prayers were over, the worshipers brought in a brand new Audi-6 to the mosque to value Imam’s efforts during the holy month of Ramadan.
In India, the car values upward of Rs 65 lakh.
“Today was a great joy, as the blessed Tarka mosque group surprised me with an expensive, elegant and blessed gift: A high-class car, praise be to God,” Imam Bounasab wrote on his Facebook account, as quoted by a Moroccan blogger. “My joy was greater with the love of these generous believers and their wrapping around me with their supplications, the spaciousness of their chests, and the goodness of their hearts. I pray for their health and wellness, and may God make their sons and daughters righteous.”
“Members of the Maghreb community living in the Spanish town of Tarka, said that the initiative to gift the Imam of the mosque, came as a surprise to express the gratitude to the preacher,” the website said. Instead of collecting donations from the worshipers in bags, and handing out the cash to the Imams and the reciters, the worshippers found this as a novel way to appreciate the Imams.”
