The Colorado Muslim Society (CMS), or Masjid Abu-Bakr, is arguably the most visible Muslim community in the Denver Metro area. Located in the suburb of Aurora, just southeast of Denver, Abu-Bakr is a Sunni community whose membership spans virtually every part of the global Muslim community. Currently Masjid Abu-Bakr is completing the final stages of its multi-million dollar expansion, thus doubling the size of its prayer facilities. Throughout its history the community has seen some very interesting developments. Anytime there is a spike in national anti-Muslim sentiment, the Colorado Muslim Society regularly feels the brunt of the impact. Structurally, Masjid-Abu Bakr is the only Islamic center in Denver that actually looks like a conventional mosque. It has a large dome with an adjacent minaret and is located along Parker road in Aurora, which is one of the busier streets of Denver. Within a ten-mile radius of the Mosque there are numerous Middle Eastern grocery stores and restaurants. Just a few blocks away is Crescent View Academy, an Islamic parochial school, with which CMS is affiliated. The school provides K-8 education for both Muslims and non-Muslims and stresses learning the Arabic language and general Islamic knowledge. Because of its success as a credible institution of learning, Crescent View has been approved eligible for a voucher system by surrounding school districts. This Islamic center sits on two acre land. Includes an outdoor children play area. Al-Ihsan academy, an Islamic high school is also located here. A multi-purpose hall is available for celebrations (aqeeqah, nikah, walima etc.) Has capacity to accommodate more than 800 worshippers.

Protect Our Muslim Neighbors Rally

Is it Freedom of Religion, or Freedom of Christian Religion? It seems that every statute of freedom our country was built on is being threatened at the very core. In just a week's time, we've seen more people lose their freedoms than we can truly fathom. People have come here over the past hundreds of years to escape the travesties in their own countries...now we've officially become another country where they are not safe. We have a beautiful line-up of speakers, poets, and musicians for this event. Right now we have a fully-booked rally. Thank you to everyone who has shown interest in speaking or performing. There will be many more events in the future! This event is specifically for showing support to our Muslim neighbors. Let's come together and find ways to support our neighboring Muslim organizations and families alike. Let's learn about their culture and plan how we can best protect them in the years to come. **We WILL accomadate an Asr prayer during our event led be a local Imam.** For those of you who lack knowledge about the Muslim community and culture, this will be a learning experience and we will gently guide you through what to do if you encounter Muslims praying in public. Our job is to offer protection and respect, just as you would to anyone praying. This rally will be educational, so don't fret that you don't know what to do as of yet. Make your boldest signs, prepare your loudest voices, and bring your warmest hugs. Our neighbors are in danger and we need to show solidaroty in support. As always, this will be a peaceful, family-friendly event. More about this event can be found here: http://303magazine.com/2017/02/denver-protest-refugee-rally-muslims/ *If you're interested in staying involved with our work and following our future protests, here are some links to help you do so: - Join our group, Community for Unity https://www.facebook.com/groups/communityforunity/ - Follow my activist page, https://www.facebook.com/RealQueenPhoenix/
