Mosque is vandalized then pays fine for vandal to save him from jail
On October, 2016, Masjid Al Salam in Fort Smith, Arkansas (USA) was vandalized by Abraham Davis. The front of the mosque was covered with the words “Go Home”, along with a swastika etched in spray paint. However, after one year, Abraham found help from the very people he hurt.
Davis was charged with community service, along with massive fines, something he was not able to do on his own. This is where the mosque stepped in.
Just before the new year arrived, President of Al Salam, Louay Nassri, decided to write a cheque for $1,700 to help pay for the rest of Davis’ fines. The money was originally allocated for renovations to the mosque.
Nassri says “Al Salam” means “peace” and he continues to uphold that meaning.
