“I’ve prayed Taraweeh in this mosque for more than 10 years straight,

And have prayed there hundreds of times throughout my whole life and never did I imagine this happening.

The women’s prayer hall is spacious and open,

But we were never allowed in the main sanctuary.”

“Never before were the sisters allowed to sit and use the main Musallah as such – even when no men were present.”

– history being made during a teen girls’ qiyam this Ramadan at Islamic Foundation in Villa Park, IL

“Women never see this view.

We are always on the mezzanine level.

But because there were no men in the main musalla,

Shaykh Noman said it was open to girls to use for qiyam until before Fajr.

Their jaws dropped.”



“The girls were even allowed to pray by the minbar”
