Mohammed Labadi, Islamic Society of NIU president, said funds were raised for the building by students, alumni and other community members.I wonder if that means "ecumenical."
“It was the most beautiful thing … because ministries are usually responsible for building mosques,” Labadi said. “It was a lot of people coming together to build the mosque.”The building's design is ecumenical also. The description of the "basement multi-purpose room" would be familiar to anyone who has been to a church supper. Space for students to study is also available. Welcome to the neighborhood.
Labadi said between 10 and 20 visitors come to the mosque daily, and its most busy day is Friday, when up to 100 people come to pray.
