Asalam Alikum wa Rahmatu Allahi wa Barakatu,
On Friday, September 15th, a hate group protested in front of Masjid Omar in hopes of enticing fear and hate amongst the community and our neighbors. Thankfully, a group of our Christian friends from Peace Catalyst International as well as non-Muslim friends-and-neighbors came out, stood side by side, with signs of peace and love to counter-act the hate. We are as well very proud of our Muslim community for not being shaken by the hate group as they peacefully walked in and out of jumu'a prayers.
Also, a huge thank you to the Columbus Police for keeping everyone safe!
May Allah guide everyone who has an ounce of hate in their heart, and may Allah strengthen and protect our Muslim community. Ameen!
