"Las Vegas mosque remembers victims of mass shooting | IRUSA

The following is an excerpt from an article posted in the  LasVegas Review-Journal  in  Oct  2017: 

“From the prayer room, a woman in a white hijab and sparkly sleeves held her hands close to her face, rocking back and forth. The men lined up in front of her at the Masjid Ibrahim Islamic Center.

“Subhana Rabbiyal Allah,” Imam Fateen Seifullah said.

Those praying knelt on the carpet and leaned their heads toward the ground. A little boy wrapped his arms around his dad’s back and prayed with him.

The mosque welcomed people of all faiths and backgrounds Monday night. And before their last prayer, they remembered victims of the Oct. 1 attack at the Route 91 Harvest music festival that killed 58 people and injured nearly 500.

Delivering relief

Islamic Relief USA is donating $10,000 to a fund to assist the families of the victims of the Oct. 1 mass shooting near theStrip.

“Words cannot explain the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history that took place last Sunday,” interim CEO Sharif Aly said. “The pain runs very deep. Islamic Relief USA’s thoughts and prayers are with the victims and the victims’ families. We also want to help in the healing process, supporting those who were physically or emotionally impacted by this horrific attack”

The donation will go to the Islamic Foundation of Nevada, for disbursal. The money will go toward medical bills and funeral expenses, among other items. ”
