(WICHITA, Kan.) — A Wichita mosque near Taft and Knight that burned down in November will soon be in service again.

“Everybody knew that they wanted to rebuild and that we do need a center on the west side for the people that use it. How that was going to get done, there were some logistics that needed to be worked out,” explains Donna Sibaai, Islamic Association member.

Investigators have never determined a cause in last fall’s fire, but gave the mosque persmission to start rebuilding last month. On Monday, supplies for the building’s roof were delivered.

Sibaai adds, “It’s like the first piece of the puzzle, so it’s going to be a great day for our community.”

  1. Any chance you could get some information on whether that mosque has a web site and a means for someone to make an online donation to the rebuilding fund?

  2. And they will rise from the ashes….

  3. good for the mosque, please refer any nutcases on the right to a (believe it or not) former leader in the John Birch Society.

    The most powerful patron of radical Islam is not Iran, Iraq, or Saudi Arabia. It is the government headquartered in Washington, D.C., which for more than a half-century has diligently cultivated Islamic terrorism.

    Whether the wording is 100% acceptable or not, William Grigg makes a strong point and this is a long-ish historical article in defense of Muslims and the First Amendment.

    He also ridicules the Anti-Sharia craze on the same basis, the history of Washington DC being the sponsor of pushing Sharia into Constitutional Law in Afghanistan and Iraq. My understanding is that MANY Muslims oppose Sharia and the arbitrary rule of Mullahs over the Rule of Law as secular democracy.

  4. addendum for anti-Muslims, Grigg is a devout Christian and long-time libertarian, not a new-fad libertarian

    For anyone with an irreverent sense of humor, a rock group with the ironic name of “The Butthole Surfers” sand the bizarre noisy song “Wichita Cathedral” in the 80s.

  5. Wichita has three mosques including this one. I think at least. Hope they rebuild. Sad to see a place of any religion burn down.

  6. Good.

  7. Thank you Allah

  8. I posted a response yesterday, but it seems to have vanished, so here it is again: Any chance we could get a web site for this mosque if there is one and a way of donating to the rebuilding fund?
