"There is a legend about Vezirova mosque in Gusinje, that is well-known among locals. In 1924, There was no rain in this region for more than six months. The representative of the three denomination organized a joint prayer to bring rain. After a week incessant rains really began. Clergy and local residents had no choice but to pray for the cessation of rainfall. During the prayer, each of them had to throw a grain of sand into a special box, that represented each inhabitant of the city. The rain stopped, and the box is preserved in the mosque to the present day, where there is a lot of stones that in some way is an indication of the number of citizens living in the Gusinje in 1924 ".
