A Washington D.C. Church, in a most dhimmi fashion, has opened its doors to Friday afternoon Muslim prayers:
WASHINGTON -- Muslims are required to say their Friday afternoon prayers, called Jumu'ah, in a congregation or community. But even in major cities, mosques can be hard to find.
So a suburban Washington mosque organized a group prayer in an unlikely place: the Episcopalian Church of the Epiphany in downtown D.C. The church welcomes more than one hundred Muslim men--and a few Muslim women--every Friday afternoon.
"It was much easier for me to come here to pray than to go all the way to the Islamic center on Mass Ave," said Adama Ndao who used to travel up to two hours to say his Friday prayers. "It saves me a lot of time."
"I feel much more satisfied to be able to say it in congregation," said A.S.N. Jahangir. "When you practice your religion, you lead a more decent life, a more honest life, a more scrupulous life."
