Masjids have served as safe areas in war torn Central Africa. A central mosque in Kilometer 5, a predominantly Muslim district of Bangui, capital of the Central African Republic (CAR), has become a safe haven for several hundreds of Muslims fleeing attacks by Christian mobs and anti-balaka militiamen. Behind these emotional, violent outbursts are the major world powers vying for mineral rights and control of resources. May Allah protect and empower the Muslims of this region. Here is a typical Central African Jami Mosque in Bujumbura, Burundi. The beauty and strength of Islam still shines!!!
