Cape Girardeau Islamic Center prepares for Ramadan one year after fire

At the start of this year’s Ramadan the Cape Girardeau Islamic Center has plans to recover from arson that happened last year.

Local imam Dr. Tahsin Khalid, center, leads a group of more than 30 men in prayer during Eid al-Fitr, a day of celebration marking the end of Ramadan, on Sunday, May 24, 2020, in Cape Girardeau. To abide by local and state recommendations for social distancing, the local Muslim community took the temperatures of all who entered the building, stationed hand sanitizer at all entrances, marked 6-foot distances between each prayer rug and provided masks to those who attended.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) – New murals symbolizing peace have transformed the Cape Girardeau Islamic Center that was heavily damaged by arson.
On Friday, April 24, a fire ripped through the building as people living inside were preparing for the holy celebration of Ramadan.
Artists Christy Moore and Craig Thomas donated their time and skill to painting the boarded-up entrance of the building.

The Rev. James Muriuki with Redeemer Episcopal Church in Cairo, Illinois, delivers a prayer to conclude a Monday Mourning call-to-action event Monday at Peace Park in downtown Cape Girardeau. The event was called by the social justice ministry at St. James AME Church to encourage local clergy members to confront racism and actively seek social justice in their communities.

The Complete Holy Quran

The Qur’an (“Qor-Ann”) is a Message from Allah (swt) to humanity. It was transmitted to us in a chain starting from the Almighty Himself (swt) to the angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad (saw). This message was given to the Prophet (saw) in pieces over a period spanning approximately 23 years (610 CE to 632 CE). The Prophet (saw) was 40 years old when the Qur’an began to be revealed to him, and he was 63 when the revelation was completed. The language of the original message was Arabic, but it has been translated into many other languages.
