Fig Tree - Spokane Islamic Center [cached]

While media dwell on wars, conflicts and violence that divide faiths and forge enemy images, Mamdouh El Aarag and Nissar Shah hope Spokane's first mosque can be a center for dialogue and relationships that counter the common connection of the name of their faith with "terrorists."

Many Muslims, such as Mamdouh, who is president of the council, and Nissar, a past president, came as students and stayed.
Some are from Seattle, Mamdouh said.

Five members of the council, including Mamdouh and Nissar, have been trained to lead the prayers.
Mamdouh said those who deliver sermons research the theme on the internet, taking ideas from approved sermons.
"Our next goal is to bring a full-time leader, an imam, to conduct the services," he said.
Mamdouh first came to the United States in 1982 and in 1986 came to Spokane to study civil engineering at Gonzaga University. He works as an environmental engineer in wastewater management with the Washington State Department of Health.
"I stayed, as many have, because I do not have a country to go back to," said Mamdouh, whose uncles and cousins are in Gaza. He and his wife are Palestinian.
In addition to their invitation for people to come to the mosque to learn about Islam, Mamdouh and Nissar said they are available to visit churches and give educational programs.

Skyler introduced Mamdouh El Aarag, a member of the Spokane Islamic Center board.

Mamdouh looked out on the crowded room and said, "It moves my heart to see you here.
With contributions of Muslims, we built the Spokane Islamic Center in 2008 at 6411 E. Second Ave. as a place for us to practice and grow in understanding our Muslim faith," Mamdouh said.
Muslims gather there for religious, social and educational activities-daily prayers, Friday midday prayers, a Wednesday study, Sunday school and youth activities. It is also used for holy days, weddings and funerals.
Mamdouh said there are four types of people among the 5,000 Muslims in the region: immigrants and refugees born outside the United States, their children, converts and international students.
"We love the United States," said Mamdouh, who came from Palestine to the U.S. in 1982 and to Spokane in 1986 as a civil engineering student at Gonzaga University. After graduating, he worked as an environmental engineer.
While many students return to their homelands, others stay. Some don't have a country to go back to.
While Mamdouh said he has not experienced bigotry, his wife, who wears a scarf, has, and his children have been picked on because they look different and have different names. They use incidents as opportunities to educate.
Mamdouh then answered questions.
Mamdouh said: "Abraham had two sons, Isaac and Ishmael.
Mamdouh said that some people who claim to be Muslim, Christian or Jewish may be bad, but the message of these three faiths is love, peace and forgiveness.
