A DeKalb mosque is now officially fully functional and open to the public. That follows a soft opening about a month ago.
This project was a long time coming. That’s according to Saad Ali, president of the Northern Illinois University Muslim Student Association.
“Now, since we have our own place, we can do all the events,” Ali said. “We don’t have to worry about booking or renting someplace to do our prayers, events and whatnot. So now we have an official place we can have all our stuff over there.”
