To the Heroes who stood up to Bigotry, and their families

The Muslim community sends it sincerest and deepest condolences to the families of the HEROES who stood up to bigotry and hate of the bully who was harassing two young women in Portland. Our broken hearts also go to the survivor and we wish him a speedy recovery. Our hearts are broken and our minds could not find words to fully describe your stand. You are a stark example of values this country was built on. America is proud of you and your friends in the Muslim community thank you for your courage and sacrifice.


To our awesome neigbours and those who attended the open house on May 13th, thank you!. It was a pleasure hosting all of you and we will remember these smily faces and words of encouragement forever!

The Muslim Community and The Islamic Center of Portland, Masjed As-Saber would like to extend its gratitude to all our neighbors, friends, and fellow Americans who have contacted us over the last few months to assure us that they are not falling for bigotry and rhetoric created by the recent political campaign against minorities across the country.

We would like to let all those who have called, those who have emailed, and those who feel that bigotry was not done in their name and let them know we appreciate their genuine feelings. It just shows how much they have raised themselves above messages which turn Americans against each other.

We apologize for not being able to respond to every person who contacted us but rest assured that your messages have reached us and made us feel very good about our community.
