Source: Lavish Library of Islamic Knowledge ‘For Everyone,’ Says Houston Mayor

The Library of Islamic Knowledge officially opened last weekend in downtown Houston. Mayor Sylvester Turner, joined by former Houston Rockets Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon, cut the ribbon of the lavish $2.5 million dollar library housed within the Islamic Da’wah Center.

At the ribbon cutting ceremony, Turner said: “This place is not just for Muslims, but everyone,” noting it opens the door for people of all faiths to learn about a different part of the highly diverse city of Houston, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The Houston newspaper described the venue as “white marble floors of the opulent library contrast with its mahogany brown tables and bookshelves – some of which remain empty.” There’s no shortage of gold in sight. The library’s executive director, Ameer Abuhalimeh, said it cost around $2.5 million.

“The center is dedicated to the history, culture and public education of Islam,” said Abuhalimeh. “Our goal isn’t just to promote a balanced perspective of Islam, but also to serve downtown Houston and the community at-large,” he added. The library is open to the public and is part of a larger goal to offer a comprehensive educational resource to Houston residents.

The Islamic Da’wah Center opened in 2002 on the site of the former Houston National Bank. Olajuwon, who converted to Islam early on in his NBA career, bought the property in 1994, converting it into the three-story mosque that houses a main prayer hall, meeting rooms, classrooms, offices, and a kitchen. It was the first mosque in downtown Houston, according to the center’s website, and the first in the city “dedicated for Da’wah” (also spelled Dawa or Dawah).

Broadly defined, Dawah means preaching, proselytizing or calling non-believers to Islam. Dawah is viewed in classic Islamic law as a communal obligation, meaning it is the general responsibility of the Muslim community,” says Kyle Shideler with the Center for Security Policy.

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, Turner also said he was happy the center will continue to serve as an educational resource for middle schools, high schools, and colleges in the area, something it has done since its soft opening two months ago, as reported by the Houston newspaper.

In 2015, the Houston Independent School District opened its Arabic immersion magnet public school, which the Qatar Foundation International (QFI) granted the district’s Board of Education $75,000 for “Arabic language activities and Arab cultural events for students, teacher professional development, educational resources, the promotion of the Arabic language, community outreach, and curriculum development” as part of the school’s educational mission. Similarly, Olajuwon described a demand for the library to help the museum “complete the educational mission of the institution,” in the Chronicle article.

Houston has the state’s largest Muslim population, which, by some estimates, accounts for 1.2 percent of the city’s population. The U.S. Census Bureau’s most current 2014 available statistics estimate 2,239,558 people reside in the city of Houston. The 2014 Social, Economic and Demographic Characteristics of Metro Houston identified Arab as an ancestry for 0.7% or 41,653 people as part of the current Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown Metro area (based on the 2013 American Community Survey) of a 6,313,158 total population. In the Houston newspaper article, Abuhalimeh claimed 200,000 Muslims live in Houston.

In 2015, the San Antonio Express-News reported there were about 80 mosques and, at least, 10 Muslim schools in HoustonAccording to a 2007 Pew Research Center survey, 65 percent of adult Muslims in the U.S. are foreign born. Pew’s 2011 survey of Muslim Americans noted  more Muslims came to the U.S. in recent years: 12 percent came before 1980; 16 percent, during the 1980s; 31 percent, in the 1990s; and 40 percent since 2000.

In January 2016, Pew reported just over half of the projected growth of the U.S. Muslim population from 2010 to 2015 was because of immigration. They estimate 3.3 million Muslims of all ages live in the U.S., comprising around 1 percent of the nation’s population. Based on age, fertility, mortality, migration, and religious switching drawn from multiple sources, including the 2011 survey, Pew projects the U.S. Muslim population to double by 2050.


It will more than double by 2050.

PS: There’s also at least one Islamic sharia court in Texas.

  1. I thought Texas had some common sense and brains; now I see I was wrong. To allow the declared enemy of the USA a foothold in their state is ludicrous. They will be sorry they have kowtowed to the muzzies as this is just the tip of the iceberg for muslims infiltration of Texas. Lock and Load.

    • AMEN!

    • The muzzies? Wow. I know 5 American Muslims that are serving our country as we speak. 3 muslim American military veterans. I personally work at a VA hospital aiding as a nurse. People like you who “lock & load” really surprise me. Just go ahead and wear your kkk white robe proudly.

      • well 1 why not have courage an show who you are an 2 do not judge both real Texans an Americans by the actions of a few or the acts of treason by the current emperor impeachable

      • @Anonymous. Waa waa waa! Cry me a river! It’s delusional AIRHEADS (like you, might I add) who can’t seem to get it through their thick heads that the only GOOD American MUZZIES are FORMER, NON-PRACTICING muslims who really and truly DO want to assimilate into our culture and really do want to be our friends! ISLAM IS EVIL! And ALL MUZZLUMZ who attend mosque ARE TAUGHT TO WAGE JIHAD–either it’s the “STEALTH” jihad variety or it’s the BLOODY kind. Don’t believe me, but your “American muslim” friends are NOT your “friends”!!!!!

    “If we begin with arresting all of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the U.S., shutting down their organizations, and all Muslim Brotherhood mosques, which is over 80 percent of them, that would be a good start,”

    He said this could be done under existing law:
    “The underlying federal charge would fall under Title 18 – Conspiracy to Overthrow the Federal government”

    BC said:
    Under Title 18 – collaborators will be charged too.

  3. well damn, here is what we in the deep south in general and particularly in the republic of Texas call atrocity , shame and Sherman in Atlanta 2.0.disgraced an embarrassed for all whom fight to prevent an ordeal like this. damn, emperor impeachable and impotent congress which is culpable to his subversion. son of a bitch having reread many of the great men and women who have fought and died for this to happen again HR 3892 MBTTDA the Muslim brotherhood terrorist designation act 2016 anyone not supporting this measure get the hell out of America

    • I am coming to believe that all the talk about a coporation owned by Rothchilds & IMF is indeed running our country… The various groups setting up new uNited States of America governments may well be onto something. We have no hope with POS traitor Obummer in, or with our useless fat cat congress people. Only term limits will stop this absolute abuse of power! God help us against these dumb sh1t lib dems like the mayor of Dallas!!!! May we survive until Trump 2016…

  5. POSTED TO My public FB with comment:

This is the method they use to take over towns then countries – go to your public meetings and take documentation showing how this is going to kill America!!!!!!!!!!!! STOP THAT IDIOT BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE FOR YOU DALLAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Hey Houston Mayor and Town Council… Are you all dumber than dirt??? Have any of you done any research as to what Stealth Jihad is all about??? Do any of you care about that??? This “Library” is nothing more and nothing less than a ‘take-over’ of your city! The MUZZLUMZ ain’t stupid–this is their way of saying loud and clear, “We’re taking over here, and you stupid infidels are now our property and our slaves!” It’s only a matter of time now until the restaurants and supermarkets will stop selling pork products, liquor stores will be forced to close and schools and churches will be forced to ‘RESPECT’ islam by preaching in favor of islamic LIES! That will be followed by increased violent outbursts and lawsuits by muzzlumz endorsed and funded by the ACLU and the MB–never mind, Houston can now look forward to the prospect of more ‘honor killings’ and outright bloody decapitations! Oh yeah, that’s a given!!!!! Oh, and how could I forget that now downtown Houston will begin to look more and more like metropolitan Detroit, which has gradually become little more than a rat-infested trash dump! Oh yeah, that’s a given too!!!!!

  7. “Houston: Dem Mayor Cuts Ribbon for Library of Islamic Knowledge”
    —the “library” has TWO BOOKS: The Koran and the companion Manual for Killing Non-Believers.

  8. More like Dhimmi Mayor wouldn’t you say? PI

  9. And yet foreign countries have ancient churches and other sites reduced to rubble. The history they have destroyed and learning cannot be replaced. Learned persons have been executed defending these properties for no other reason than they are an infidel.

    Let’s see how long before schools start recommending this place for children to go to study.

    I watched the movie “Lincoln” a couple of years ago; in one scene he was at a small town where they had built a government building, it was being dedicated and the flag was raised; Lincoln said, “it is your responsibility to keep the flag raised”. America has other nations raised now, our forefathers are turning in their grave. What they fought for, freedom, is going to be a thing of the past. The borders need to be closed, the drawbridge drawn up, and the gates closed to persons who do not espouse our nation’s constitution. Our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will reap what this nation is allowing now and it is showing it’s ugly head more and more each day. They done pissed the American Indians off, when are all others going to get pissed off

  10. I thought Houston had a white female mayor. this guy turner is a black male. i’m confused, in that sense…..

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
