With dozens of people of other faiths attending in solidarity and out of curiosity, the ICSC held a “satellite” Friday prayer service at the First United Methodist Church in Pasadena (FUMC). The khutba was delivered by Salam Al-Marayati, an uplifting message on gratitude and a timely reminder in advance of Thanksgiving. Pastor Sandy Olewine greeted the congregation with “Assalaamu Alaykum” and expressed her appreciation to the ICSC community Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek greeted the group with Assalaamu Alaykum as well. He welcomed the Muslim community and expressed that Pasadena is enriched by its diversity of religious and other groups. Dr. Rizwan Bhatti welcomed those of other faiths and provided background on Friday prayer services followed by Dr. Saleh Kholaki’s melodious Adhan which filled the church sanctuary.
