Muslim population has seen dramatic growth in Tulsa
by Nour Habib
Raymond Shakir has been in Tulsa for more than 40 years. He's been a part of the Muslim community here almost as long.
"I stopped through Tulsa by accident," said Shakir, 68.
In 1970, Shakir left his hometown right outside of Oklahoma City, where his great-grandfather had claimed land during the Land Rush, and came to Tulsa to see his sister. He landed a temporary job and planned to move on afterward.
