50,000 Muslims to Descend on Capitol Hill
by Hillel Fendel
A massive Islamic prayer service will be held on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. at the end of this month – and 50,000 Muslims are expected to take part.
For a few hours on Sept. 25, the site where U.S. presidents are traditionally inaugurated, will essentially be turned into a giant outdoor mosque. The Jummah service – weekly Friday prayers – will "echo off of the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and other great edifices that surround Capitol Hill," according to the organizers.
