We wish our neighbors to be comfortable with our presence and know that our doors will be open to them whenever they wish to visit.

Neighborly mosque

Thanks to the Inquirer for writing about the mosque we are building north of Temple University ("Ahmadiyya mosque rising in N. Phila.," May 31).

The story quoted residents who said they had been unaware of the project until construction began. We did conduct a community meeting at the Cookman United Methodist Church on April 15, 2010, to an overwhelmingly positive response, before construction began.

The mosque will include a community center and soup kitchen in addition to teaching the peaceful principles of Islam. We wish our neighbors to be comfortable with our presence and know that our doors will be open to them whenever they wish to visit.
