I was raised in a small town in Arizona that at the time had a very small Muslim population. At the time there was not an Islamic center and our Friday prayers, Sunday schools, Eid prayers, and breaking fast together during the holy month of Ramadan were conducted on a rotating schedule in a few homes of our family friends.  Later on, as the Muslim American community grew, we would host the community in a hall located inside a church that was gracious to lend us their space.
