At Mosque of Jesus, Son of Mary, 501 Park St., Syracuse
Mosque of Jesus, Son of Mary (Masjid Isa Ibn Maryam)At this assembly we will recognize that an act of worship is not just in the form of prayers and rituals, but is also in the practice of promoting kindness, generosity, good civic behavior and above all, respect for other human beings. "There is reward for kindness to every living thing," (Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him). This year's theme, "Opening Windows of Understanding," is an opportunity to highlight the importance of collaborative relationship building within our Syracuse community. Through learning about each other and engaging in respectful dialogue we can remove barriers of ignorance. In this there is a lesson: we are not that different from each other.
