U.S. Congressman Keith Ellison will deliver keynote address
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA will inaugurate its first mosque in Minnesota, named Nusrat Mosque, in Coon Rapids. The Honorable United States Congressman Keith Ellison will deliver the keynote address. The inauguration is open to the public.
“In a time when most Americans have never met a Muslim, we invite all Americans to join us in this celebration,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, National Vice President for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. “We believe this mosque, which is open to all people, will foster a spirit of community with neighbors and establish inter-religious harmony and peace.”
A mosque is an Islamic place of worship for Muslims to gather and worship God. This mosque will have space for men and women to worship, to hold events, and will also have spiritual training classes for children during the weekend.
