Rebuild the Islamic Center of Ypsilanti


On the night of March 11th, the Islamic Center of Ypsilanti was set on fire.

Currently The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is helping to declare the cause of the fire. It appears to have started inside when the mosque was empty, making it suspicious. Nobody was injured, alhamdulillah.

Despite the reason, the mosque will still need to rebuild. Let's show our support and help them rebuild their community.

(FARMINGTON HILLS, MI, 3/12/17) - The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) today asked local, state and federal fire investigators and law enforcement authorities to probe a mosque fire in Pittsfield Township as a possible act of arson.

The Islamic Center of Ypsilanti burned down late yesterday afternoon in what is being termed a "suspicious" fire. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is on the scene.

"We urge state and federal agencies to use their full resources to investigate this fire to determine a cause and, if it is determined to be arson, a possible motive," said CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid. “Anyone who has information about this fire, or saw anything suspicious at the time of the blaze, should immediately contact law enforcement authorities."

He added that CAIR-MI is offering a $1,000 award for any information given to law enforcement authorities that leads to an arrest and conviction of the perpetrator if the fire is ruled to be arson.
