Warren–October 17–Seven local
mosques opened their doors to welcome
non-Muslim community members and
TMO was present at one of the mosques,
IONA on Ryan in Warren.
The mosque was incredibly beautiful, looking like a museum. There were hand written copies of Qur`an, calligraphy, Islam-related videos playing, many items with Qur`an engraved in them.
“Feed your pregnant wife with dates, she
will surely give birth to a baby who is
patient, well-behaved, and intelligent.”
“Use this black seed regularly, because it is
a shifa for every disease except death.”
About 35 local people visited IONA during
the course of the day, leaving behind their
signatures in the welcome book.
Amin Varis explained that the mosque had arranged for recent converts to welcome each of the visitors and guide them around, explaining the displays.
