Texas: Wesleyan gives Muslims prayer room, now they want Islamic footwash

From the East cost to Texas, it creeps. A United Methodist institution, inshallah!

Note the oddest of titles for this piece by Rosy Perez. What is an interfaith student and how does a Muslim prayer room provide an outlet anyone but Muslims?

Mohammed Khalid M. Alshafei, president of the Saudi Students Club at Wesleyan, had a meeting in 2012 with President Frederick Slabach asking for a prayer room to be provided as prayer is very important for the Saudi culture.

It is quite common for Saudi students to pray about five times a day, three of those times during classes or school.

“The reasons for this (prayer room) are twofold,” said Rev. Dr. Robert K. Flowers, Wesleyan chaplain. “One, to show hospitality to our foreign students and, two, our campus needs to be open and tolerant of other faith traditions whether it is Islam, Hindu, Jewish, or otherwise.”

The prayer room was established in 2012 and is located in the Morton Fitness Center.

The prayer room also has to face toward the Ka’ba shrine in Mecca for Islamic observances, according to www.religionfacts.com.

According to thereligionofpeace.com, Muslims have committed nearly 22,000 terrorist acts since 9/11.

Another thing the Islamic students perform before praying is the washing of hands and feet.

“We have to be cleaned before we pray,” said Alshafei. “We believe that when we pray, we will be between the hands of God.”

Islamic pray starts in the standing position and moves through several postures and ends with the taslima (greeting) meaning “Peace be upon you,” according to religionfacts.com.

When talking to Alshafei, he indicated many of his friends and classmates use the prayer room.

Currently, students who use the prayer room wash their hands and feet in the bathrooms of the Morton Fitness Center but the question of whether or not a different area should be used has come up in recent conversations.

Why not the areas of Mecca or Medina?

  1. Those of other cultures should practice their faith at their homes or churches. Schools, colleges, workplace & public places are not the proper place for prayer in the USA. Maybe they need to hire the professors and take them to their country where their faith is the normal. Please stop pushing islam and sharia law in the USA. Sharia law should never be let into the USA. It causes double standards and does not fit in.

    • To implore Muslims to “please stop pushing Islam” is like asking a vampire to stop drinking blood. Islam demands superiority and authority in all matters of politics, society, law, social custom, education, commerce, religious practice, ethics, morals and world view. Muslims are here to “push” their disgusting Arabic hegemony in all things onto the west.

  2. If you give a mouse some cheese, he’ll come back for crackers and wine. … Now, having said that, I expect the gov’t to be diligent and vigilent ..

  3. They should wash their feet at home or in the bathrooms of the building, the toilets make a nice fot bath for them, WHAT NEXT?I sincerely feel sorry for them beeing so brainwashed.

  4. how dirty do their feet get?? they are in shoes n socks all day- seems a spray bottle or pitcher with small basin is sufficient to get the job done- but no- Muslims are about DEMANDING – you can see many churches do foot washing ceremonies without expensive intrusive PLUMBING

    OTHER religious people who have such strict observance BUILD THEIR OWN SCHOOLS AND POOLS- send them to university at AL Quds or other Middle East schools with their needs, demands, gender apartheid already met….

    Now this part is a real crack up: “”””tolerant of other faith traditions whether it is Islam, Hindu, Jewish, or otherwise.” “””

    BULLSHIT and a half- none of those asked for same or other frivolous demands –and tolerance hmm let’s see who is the MOST INTOLERANT of any other faith—–> MUSLIMS

    • About 25 percent. The president, Slabach, went around the faculty and allowed people who can barely speak English–let alone read and write–be admitted from Saudi Arabia.

      The next influx will be Muslims from Bangladesh.

      Slabach only cares about his personal bonus’. If he sinks the university, he does not care as it is obvious he will jump ship once his resume is padded.

  5. Thereby, Wesleyan promotes death and destruction.

    http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/imperialism/notes/islamchron.html 1009 AD: Caliph Al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah, orders the Holy Sepulcher and all Christian buildings in Jerusalem be destroyed.

    3/15/12 arabianbusiness.com: The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh, recently announced that it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.“ He is the head of the Supreme Council of Ulema (Islamic scholars) and of the Standing Committee for Scientific Research and Issuing of Fatwas for all Sunnis. Sunnis are 85% of the world’s Muslims.

    7/25/13 http://www.hoover.org/publications/defin… “Few people realize that we are today living through the largest persecution of Christians in history, worse even than the famous attacks under ancient Roman emperors like Diocletian and Nero. Estimates of the numbers of Christians under assault range from 100-200 million. According to one estimate, a Christian is martyred every five minutes. And most of this persecution is taking place at the hands of Muslims. Of the top fifty countries persecuting Christians, forty-two have either a Muslim majority or have sizeable Muslim populations.”

  7. I wonder how many mosques provide facilities for Christians or other faiths. The US and the West should remember Hitler, he said just allow me this and I will not have any more demands. We know how that ended.

  8. So do they allow women in their to pray. Uh no. Now with this college being a Christian university, why would they allow the region if Saran in to worship? As fir the chaplains statement, it is obvious he doesn’t know his bible or he would k is of the conversation between God and the devil which established the Islamic religion. So go ahead and give your university away to the enemy. Mark my word they will end with demanding all Christian chapels or mention of Christianity be removed from the campus. You have let the enemy in and you will suffer. Their devil worship should not. E accommodated, they should not have enrolled there if it interfered with their habits. Get rid of the prayer room before you regret your decision. And you will.

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
