Good Friday is a religious holiday celebrated by Christians to pay tribute to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. For Muslims, every Friday is a religious day and all adult muslim men are to perform Friday prayers at noon. Good Friday in Scotland, Muslims were invited to pray in St. John’s Church because some muslims were praying outside the neighbouring mosque on a cold day and despite having different beliefs, they respect each other’s belief and there were no tension between them.
