On Monday, Feb. 9, 2015, Irizarry, Coleman, and Seamon met with one of Masjidullah’s Board of Trustee members, Mike Rashid to discuss their goals they have with the Mosque for the upcoming weeks. As of right now, the students want to become involved in the Masjidullah community on a personal level. In other words, they want to get to know individuals as themselves outside of the Mosque. They will eventually work with the Mosque on a food drive.
