During a time where attacks on places of worship are trending, Ahmadiyya Muslims are hoping to build understanding and connections through the community events, said Harris Zafar, spokesperson for Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA.
“As part of the fabric of America since 1920, we want our fellow Americans to know that our mosques are their mosques, which is why we are hosting these Open Mosque events around the country to invite our fellow Americans to break bread with us and learn about their Muslims neighbors,” said Amjad Mahmood Khan, national director of public affairs for the organization.
The goal is to build bridges, break barriers and get to know one another face-to-face, Zafar said, particularly with a recent rise in Islamophobia.
