This is all during Ramadhan:
(1) Sikh temple shooting (the shooter mistook it for a masjid and killed 8 people)
(2) Masjid martyrdom in Missouri (masjid was burnt to the ground)
(3) And over the weekend MEC near my house was shot at 2 times by a neighbor with a high powered air rifle, the bullets broke pieces of the masjid brick and nearly struck one of the security guards, it was strong enough to have killed him if made contact.
(4) And just yesterday CPSA (Islamic school) near my house was victim when a bottle full of acid and some other materials was thrown through the window during taraweeh salaah.
All Muslims read daily duas for protection of yourself and family and fellow Muslims before leaving your home, particularly recite this dua 7 times after every salaah:
Allahumma inna najaluka fi nuhurihim wa na'oozubika min shururihim
Be careful and be aware of where you are, keep your eyes and ears open, contact law enforcement if you suspect any type of suspicious activity near masjid/Islamic center. Keep your eyes and ears open for the safety of other Muslims around you. Dont be afraid and dont stop your day to day routine, dont be bullied around. Come together as a community against these hate crimes. Educate people around you.
