Now that I have internet access again I’ve been following the 30 Mosques in 30 Days project. It’s a photo-blog by Aman Ali and Bassam Tariq where they visit a different New York City mosque every day of Ramadan and share their stories and pictures. An excerpt:
After a few minutes of breaking the ice, I mentioned the word “Call of Duty 4” and immediately a group of kids swarmed me. We had a blast during dinner cracking jokes. One thing I really love is seeing younger kids come to mosques because they genuinely enjoy being there, not because they are dragged by their parents. Its kids like these that make me feel good about where the Muslim community as a whole is headed in this country.
