Dishes made from porridge and dates were reportedly served ahead of sundown. The secretary-general of Jamiyah Muhammad Rafiuddin Ismail then made the call to prayer and said, “Our thoughts go out to the families of the victims of the London terror attack last night,” according to The Telegraph.

“Let peace and harmony prevail in communities all over the world,” he said.

On Saturday night, three men drove into a crowd of people in London killing seven victims and wounding 48 others. The attack comes just two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
