Dresden Files: Philadelphia
Mosque that's been in Center City since the 1980s
Welcome and Protect All Innocents
The Masjid al-Tarhib (lit. "Welcome Mosque") has been in Philadelphia's Center City since the mid 1980s. The aging Imam has, over the years, done his best to keep the Mosque a place where people of all faiths feel welcome to participate in community service and other activities. Since the 9/11 attacks, it has occasionally been the target of vandalism, but the Imam has held his head high and things have gotten better as of late.
