THE BRONX - Wakefield Muslims have been utilizing temporary locations to worship since a fire destroyed Al Huda Mosque last month.
Worshippers say that their mosque was the only one in the area for miles. Today, they gathered at a cell phone store to worship on their holiest day of the week.
Shiek Moussa Drammah, who heads the Al-Iman Islamic Cultural Center in Parkchester, says the most important thing to do right now is find a permanent location for his fellow brothers and sisters.
Many of the worshippers agree that the temporary spot may not be ideal, but they are grateful to be able to come together to worship as a group.
The fire along East 225th Street destroyed several businesses in addition to the mosque.
