Renewed faith in a place of worship

September 07, 2008

Re "A new mosque, just in time for Ramadan," Sept. 1

I would like to commend The Times for its coverage of the new mosque in Rancho Cucamonga. As an avid mosque-goer myself, I appreciate the acknowledgment of the importance of such facilities to members of the Muslim faith, especially while mosques in Milan and several other areas in Europe are being threatened with closure because of nearby residents' unwarranted fear of their occupants.

Articles like these are refreshing. They show that the true followers of Islam are not the bomb-happy terrorists most people generalize them to be, but are like any other peaceful human beings, trying to make a living for themselves while managing to practice their faith.
