"During my recent visit to the beautiful island of Bermuda, I was blessed to visit one of the local mosques, an old structure that dates back to the 1700s (although it was only converted to a masjid around a decade ago). What really amazed me was that, centuries ago, this masjid used to be a place that housed over a hundred slaves, but today it houses the worshippers of Allah." - Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi
