About Aqsa-Salam

Imam Konate Sulaymane

The Masjid AQSA-SALAM is home to the oldest Muslim community ever founded in New York and its surroundings. It was established in 1996 by immigrants from Côte d'Ivoire. It is the result of the merger of two mosques of Harlem, AQSA and SALAM.

For nearly two decades, this Mosque represented a veritable symbol that brought together all the Muslim communities, the vast majority of whom are of West African origin. Indeed, beyond a place of worship, this mosque served as a hub, a true community center that played a very important role in the development of Harlem in general and the neighborhood commonly called 'Little Africa' (Little Africa).

City Muslim Leaders Use End of Ramadan to Speak Out Against Terrorism

City Muslim Leaders Use End of Ramadan to Speak Out Against Terrorism

BY ERIN CLARKE THE BRONX

PUBLISHED 9:34 PM ET JUL. 06, 2016

With Muslims across the city celebrating the end of the holy month of Ramadan, community leaders are speaking out about terrorism carried out in the name of Islam. NY1's Erin Clarke filed the following report.

With a massive outdoor prayer service, Muslims in Harlem celebrated Eid Al-Fitr, the final day of Ramadan, this year against the backdrop of terrorism across the Muslim world.

"The terrorist don't have no face. They don't have no religion, brothers and sisters," said Souleimane Konate, imam at Masjid Aqsa Salam.

In Turkey, Bangladesh, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, recent bombings killed hundreds. And a gunman in Orlando pledging allegiance to the Islamic State killed 49 people.

With some Americans questioning whether Islam is a peaceful religion, the imam of the city's largest West African mosque said the terrorrists in no way represent Islam.

"So-called Muslims, they hide behind Islam, they hide behind the Quran to kill innocent people just to divide us," Konate said.

Wednesday afternoon, members of Masjid Al-Iman, a mosque in the Bronx, held a news conference echoing those sentiments.

"The world is becoming a very dangerous and cantankerous place, so we as Muslims must step up to the plate and shun those who preach against what the prophet Muhammad use to preach and do actions contrary to the belief of humanity," said one member.

The group said their message of peace and unity is also relevant here in America. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has proposed banning Muslims from entering the country, and he has criticized Mayor Bill de Blasio for ending police surveillance of mosques.

"Politically, we're looking at a very scary future," said one member. "This is my country. All of my family lives in this country. I love this country, and I do not want to be sectioned out of this country. This is my home as an American and a Muslim."

Back in Harlem, Islamic leaders praised city officials for rebuking Trump's and taking steps to make the Muslim community feel more welcome. For the first time, city schools were closed this past year during the Muslim holy days of Eid Al-Adha and Eid Al-Fitr.
