Grand opening of new Islamic facility in Hamtramck area

Yesterday, the Islamic Center of North Detroit (Masjid Al-Falah) held its grand opening in its new location off of McDougal in Detroit. The new facility used to be a Catholic school and community center with housing for Catholic teachers.

Yesterday's Friday sermon had well over 1,000 Muslims in attendance.

Monday will be the first day of classes for Al-Ikhlas Training Academy at this location, a Pre-K through 12th grade school, which was established approximately 15 years ago. The nationalities of the staff and students are African-American, Bengali-American, Yemeni-American, Palestinian-American, Somali-American, Ethiopian-American, Sudanese-American, Gambian-American and White-American.
