A Mother’s Reflections on Mosques

An interesting piece written by American Muslim and mom, Dr. Sarah Sayeed.

My own real worry is that without mosques, young men like my son, and all of us, will miss out on an opportunity to stop for prayer, and grow in inner calmness. For that is what houses of worship, whether a mosque or a synagogue, offer to our otherwise rushed lives — a restorative healing that helps us build connection to self, family, friends and community. It is a place where we can be reminded of the power of all faiths to help us rebuild what is lost.

About Just Vegas

I'm a 30-something married SAHM which means the nightmare scenario that plagued my early 20's has become reality. Funny thing is, I kinda like it. I have 3 lovely daughters who are educated at home and at a part-time alternative school. I love animals and I love people (in the general sense, not everybody all the time). I have no income to speak of, I'm not crafty and I hate cooking. My skills include reading the internet, watching tv on the internet and conversing with people on the internet. I'm an armchair philosopher, spiritualist, agnostic, feminist, liberal, activist, political pundit and tv critic.

    Not welcome? How sad. Although I understand the issues surrounding the Mosque in lower Manhattan near the WTC site, I don’t understand the people who wouldn’t want any house of worship in their town.
