Rohingya Muslim Relief Mosque

history page pic1Vickery Meadow in Northeast Dallas is home to 50,000 people from all over the world in about five square miles, including many Muslim residents from the Middle East, Africa, and Southeast Asia. But the area is not home to any public mosques. Because many residents lack transportation, traveling to the nearest mosque in Richardson is not a viable option. Rohingya Muslim Relief (RMR) stepped in to fill the void.

The organization emanated from Myanmar refugees, who fled their homeland’s violence against their faith. RMR created a space in The Ivy apartments so that Muslim neighbors can worship close to home. It also provides religious education for 180 Muslim children during the week. With permission from management, members transformed an old storage unit into a place to pray. Islamic art decorates the windowless room. Rugs line the floor and spill into the parking lot for worshippers to practice “Salah,” the five daily prayers. Space also has running water for residents to cleanse their face, hands, and feet, a practice called “Wudu.”

Refugees often risk their safety to escape their homeland and spend years in camps waiting to be resettled in a land with little resemblance to home. The RMR space provides them a chance to reconnect with their culture and faith.
