Islamic Community Center of Augusta holds Open House

Posted: Updated:
MARTINEZ, GA (WFXG) -

The Islamic Community Center of Augusta invited residents of the CSRA to come see the new building Saturday.

The center, located on Old Evans Rd. in Martinez, was completed in October.

But members wanted to open their doors to the community, and invited people of all faiths Saturday.

Attendees were able to tour the center, learn more about Muslim culture, and taste foods from all over the world.

Religious leaders say they hope the center can bridge the gap between Muslims and the rest of the CSRA and bring people of all faiths together.

"When we know each other, we reduce the fear. We can work together. We can love each other more," says Imam Mohamad Jamal Daoudi. "We can appreciate your presence with me as a neighbor, regardless of the way you worship."
