    We know these people are out there, and it may be that they thought they were targeting muslims. I think an investment in security (at least during congregation times) is a good investment. Every mosque or islamic center needs to do its own assessment and implement a security plan.

    May Peace,Mercy & Blessings of Al-Mighty God ‘Allah’ be on all of you…. It’s really painful to read such negative piece of news…In His final Message, our Creator says,”…..whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption(done) in the land-it is as if he had killed mankind entirely. And whoever saves one-it is as if he had saved mankind entirely……..”[The Qur’aan 5:32] Mathematically, saving 1 life=saving mankind & killing 1 life=killing mankind. Let’s heed from this message.

    INVESTMENT IN TRAINED SECURITY SHOULD BE AUTOMATIC IF WE UNDERSTAND HOW TO READ AND APPLY WHAT IS CLEAR IN THE QURAN AND IN OUR CASE HERE IN USA NOT JUST DURING PRAYER BUT 24 /7 IF YOU UNDERSTAND THE TIME.. Answer is in AL Quran..Allah says in AL QURAN in Surah 4. Al Nisa (the Women Ayats 101-104 See this Ayat 102 .

    The Muslims that live in the areae and that attend a Mosque that has been threatened or attacked .What they should do is hire armed licensed Muslim security guards rate to protect the Islamic place of worship.

    Stand up there is Al Quran to confirm these actions READ AND ACT on what you read in AL QURAN Surah 4. Al Nisa (the Women Ayats 101-104 See this Ayat 102 .
    and quit being cowards.

    .Listen up….Beware of the beast watch as well as pray..

    Allah says in AL QURAN in Surah 4. Al Nisa (the Women Ayats 101-104 See this Ayat 102 . When thou (O Messenger. art with them, and standest to lead them in prayer, Let one party of them stand up (in prayer) with thee, Taking their arms with them: When they finish their prostrations, let them Take their position in the rear. And let the other party come up which hath not yet prayed – and let them pray with thee, Taking all precaution, and bearing arms: the Unbelievers wish, if ye were negligent of your arms and your baggage, to assault you in a single rush. But there is no blame on you if ye put away your arms because of the inconvenience of rain or because ye are ill; but take (every) precaution for yourselves. For the Unbelievers Allah hath prepared a humiliating punishment .

    Stand up there is Al Quran to confirm these actions READ AND ACT on what you read in AL QURAN Surah 4. Al Nisa (the Women Ayats 101-104 See this Ayat 102 .
    and quit being cowards.
