A new place of worship is now open in Dubuque!
The Tri-State Islamic Center of Dubuque held a Grand Opening of its new mosque last Saturday. A variety of people spoke during the two hour ceremony about how the creation of the mosque affected their lives for the better. People who spoke ranged from Dubuque’s Chief of Police to Dr. John Eby; a professor of History at Loras College. The mosque is headed by Dr. Rami Eltibi, who is a doctor at Mercy Hospital in Dubuque. Eltibi mentioned that the mosque was open for services since January, but the Grand Opening was when the mosque opened up to the public.
