-alaamu alakium This article is a perfect example of why we are so misunderstood. The lack of mosques is one of the factors that I attribute to my previous less than religious lifestyle. To expand on my first point if americans see muslims as religious people and not an Army or Dangerous group we would not have to contend with so many of these hardships and sterotypes we face, in'shalla. second it is very hard for a muslim to stray when he/she hears azan again and again. we hear the call to God and our faith is renewed. islamsoft.com has a wonderfull program which can bring azan to our houses for those of us who dont have the blessing of a close mosque. I urge all who are able, expand, let us build houses to show our foundation is solid and very much alive in America, and all nonislamic countries.
