The inauguration began with the recitation of the Holy Quran.

Imam Essa Jawara gave an impactful sermon during the opening, focusing on Islamic teachings and the spiritual benefits of building a mosque.

He stressed the importance of mosque construction, noting the enduring and profound blessings it bestows, beyond its physical edifice.
