Update from American Daee Jamal Omar:
I came to the Masjid to pray Dhuhr and as I was leaving some of the brothers said a strange guy has come to the masjid. The man Michael has tattoos all over his body and the brothers were scared. I started talking to Michael who said he was a Christian. I asked why he had come to the masjid and apologized and explained about why Muslims are hesitant of tattoos. We had a long conversation and I was amazed how Allah (swt) kept his heart clean even in disobedience and how his belief was that of a Muslim. I explained that Muhammad (saw) said that if people of the book believe that Allah is One and not like His creation and that Muhammad (saw) is the messenger of God then accept it from them. Michael came in as a non-Muslim and left as Mika’eel the Muslim. Allahu Akbar. Allah is the best to guide his creation to guidance. Him and his wife and kids will join us for Iftar tonight. Please make dua that his wife also accepts as it will be a whole family who enters Islam, insha Allah.
When Moroccan national Said Louahabi arrived in Mexico City in 1994, he and fellow Muslims had to attend religious services at the Pakistani embassy because there were no mosques or Islamic centers.
“I started looking for Muslims and a mosque when I first arrived,” Louahabi, an English teacher, told Fox News Latino. “At the time, we met at the Pakistani embassy, and there were only about 80 people – most of us were foreigners”.
Now, Louahabi prays alongside hundreds of other Muslims – foreigners and Mexicans alike – at the three-story Muslim Community Educational Center in the city’s upscale Anzures neighborhood.
