Muslim Day did not go as smooth as some thought it would after a woman took the courage to hijack the Islamic call to prayer. She had a message to deliver, and hopefully, her efforts paid off.
Muslim minority join their forces and gather at state capitols across the country in order to do their daily Islamic prayer right there, in the center of government buildings. Yes, they are that serious about taking over city halls.
In the last few occasions, hundreds of Muslims lied down on their prayer mats and bowed to Allah. A cleric vocalizes the adhan over the loudspeaker, encouraging all adherents to stop what they are doing at the moment and pray.
Over 100 Muslims gathered at the Oklahoma State Capitol for their regular Friday prayer. However, everyone was shocked when a local resident tried to hald the invocation. And that was not all. The prayer was disrupted with one major goal – sharing an important message with whoever may be concerned.
Muslims gathered to pray and surrounded the midpoint of the Oklahoma State Capitol building. Christine Weick interrupted their Friday adhan. The local resident is a protester who had a message for everyone in the building. Weick marched to the cleric’s podium and managed to attract the attention of all the Muslims in the place.
What did Weick do? She took the microphone and recited The Lord’s Prayer. The kneeling congregants were shocked, and the protester kept invoking the Christian prayer. Security officers jumped in and grabbed her. Weick was escorted by two police officers. However, she managed to deliver her message.
“…lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory. For ever and ever. Amen. That is our message. I’m a little bit upset about this because this is something that we were told is open to the public, and we are a part of the public,” Weick said.
