    Ramadan Mubarak
    I used to love this Masjid, and miss it so. I learned a lot while there. Good people, but don’t ever criticize them, or accept their money. It comes at too high of a price. Don’t ever try to use complex language, and eloquence in letters to them either. While the English is superb, the cultural grounding, and comprehension is so bad they will start yelling at you, and you’ll never get past it.

    I have had a hard road, and I now feel that I was too passive aggressive when I posted this comment. I ask Allah(SWT) and then this community to forgive me for my mistakes. These are wonderful people whom I abandoned due to my own stupidity. I am a convert and although I don’t understand every nuanced thing in this world, I still believe this is where one can find the authentic message of Islam, Allah(SWT) knows best. From a traveller to the seekers this place is a true rarity.

    Great Muslim Community in a small town! We are blessed to have a full time Imam with good quality Khutba and classes during the week days. It is amazing to see the community gowing with Muslim families moving in and American brothers revert to the right path of Islam!
