Johari Abdul-Malik & Suhaib Webb | Mega-Mosque Communities and LonelinessPosted: January 18, 2011
Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, an imam at Dar al-Hijrah moved within walking distance of ADAMS Center so that his family could be closer to a progressive (in the conservative sense), dynamic, and welcoming community led by Imam Mohamed Magid.
Most individuals attend religious services for two reasons, to have communion with the divine and for fellowship with a community of like-minded believers. Jews and Christians primarily attend their houses of worship for the latter reason while Muslims that frequent mosques primarily attend for the former, which can lead to a lack of real community and feelings of loneliness.
