The community is invited to "Standing Together in Solidarity," an open house at Jami Masjid Mosque of Buffalo, NY that will provide an opportunity to witness a Muslim prayer and to ask questions about Islam.

Hassan Shibly, executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations' Florida chapter and a University at Buffalo Law School graduate, will be the speaker.

The event is at 6 p.m. Thursday March 28th in the mosque at 1955 Genesee St.

"We're just trying to open our doors and build bridges in times like this," said Mohammed Shariff, a mosque attendee, in a written statement.

The open house comes in the wake of mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand on March 15 that left at least 50 people dead. A 28-year-old Australian faces murder charges in the shootings.
