.

The media is how Most Americans came to associate Islam with the deeds of terrorism. The historical perspective of Christianity vs Muslims also colors people's perception. If you stop there with your fact gathering you will miss out on the beauty of the world's fastest growing religion. There are several billion Muslim's in the world and in Atlanta there are tens of thousands. The Atlanta Masjid is one of the largest Masjids in the city and they have just celebrated their 50 year anniversary. Mayors and students from the greater Atlanta area routinely visit. For those who come on a weekly basis they enjoy teachings from wise leaders who love America and God and teach discipline, and spiritual values.When you visit you will see men and women sit on the floor apart from each other in the same room. Men sit in the front and women in the back that is because the formal prayer requires positions of prostration and modesty is best served with this arrangement. Women are highly respected and held in high esteem. The Quran says" Reverence the wombs that bore you."Everyone is warmly welcome and invited to return as often as you like. for those seeking to understand God from a Monotheistic view this is the place. Questions are welcome and so are you. Our community is extremely active in the interfaith community. The sterotype of the racist, and terrorist will be dispeled when you sit amongst us. Our audience is full of school children and seniors with lots of adults as well. Women are encouraged to wear pants and bring a headscarf. although a scarf is not required for guests you just may feel more comfortable with one. As all Muslim women cover their heads for prayer. The dress of Muslim women is modesty and face veils are rare in our community although some women in America choose to wear it.Going to a place of worship different than your own may just be the best thing that ever happened to you. So if you have been feeling empty or curious then please visit more than once.

I am staying here for the summer with Emory's Summer Intern Housing Program and I must say I am very impressed. The housing is very nice and the amenities are great! There is an olympic size pool right outside my dorm room, a volleyball court, a tennis court, indoor/outdoor basketball courts, a fitness room and a great student center. The campus is in a great location--there are restaurants, grocery stores, and pretty much anything else you need nearby. The staff is friendly and the price for housing is reasonable considering everything is included.
