The Washington National Cathedral will host Muslim prayer service on Friday. The service, which will begin around 12:20 and is for invited guests only. From the Washington Post:
Washington National Cathedral, known for presidential funerals and other major spiritual services, will host a Muslim prayer service for the first time Friday.
The cathedral, part of the Episcopal Church, has long held high-profile interfaith events, and some mosques hold services in synagogues or churches if they need overflow space. But organizers said Monday that they are seeking to make a statement by having Muslim leaders come and hold their midday service in such a visible Christian house of worship.
Jaka noted that three of ADAMS’s 22 weekly services are held at two synagogues and a church. ADAMS (All Dulles Area Muslim Society — the Council on American Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, Muslim Public Affairs Council and Masjid Muhammad mosque in Northwest Washington) is hosting a fundraiser for Christian religious freedom in Pakistan, and it regularly hosts non-Muslim speakers.
