US: Alaska to get its first mosque



The U.S. state of Alaska is due to get its first mosque in the town of Anchorage.

The small Muslim community in the town have for years been performing congregational prayers in a rented space in a shopping mall, but the growing number of Muslims in the area left them will no choice but to search for a bigger space.

After years of fundraising, the four-year construction of the state’s first mosque is now near completion.

The two-story mosque will cater for both men and women, and will also include classrooms, offices and a library for the benefit of local Muslims who have migrated from all over the world.

Estimates for the number of Alaskan Muslims range from 1,000 to 5,000, about 0.5% of the state’s population.

About Akhi Soufyan

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden.
