Muslim prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral

The first Muslim prayer service ever hosted at Washington's National Cathedral, a landmark Christian church in the US capital on November 14th, 2014. National Cathedral's Rev Canon Gina Campbell organised the service with the support of various Muslim organizations (All Dulles Area Muslim Society, Council on American-Islamic Relations, Islamic Society of North America, Muslim Public Affairs Council and The Nation's Mosque). Rev Campbell welcomed the religious gathering, saying the Washington National Cathedral has been "a place of prayer for all people”. She said, "Let us stretch our hearts and let us seek to deepen mercy for we worship the same God". The South African ambassador to the United States, Ebrahim Rasool, also gave a sermon that preached peace in Islam and religious freedom. The prominent Episcopal cathedral often hosts national events, such as presidential funerals, and has hosted Muslims at various interfaith services in the past, while this has been the first time the cathedral has invited Muslims to lead their own prayers, which is considered as significant for the Muslim-Christian relations.”
