Washington D.C.’s National Cathedral will host a Muslim prayer service for the first time on Friday (Nov. 14). Charisma News reports that the event will symbolize unity and religious freedom. 


Rev. Gina Campbell, National Cathedral director of liturgy and Ebrahim Rasool, South African Ambassador to the United States planned the event. 


Ebrahim said that the event will be “a dramatic moment in the world and in Muslim-Christian relations.” 


Rizwan Jaka, ADAMS mosque spokesman said, "We want the world to see the Christian community is partnering with us and is supporting our religious freedom in the same way we are calling for religious freedom for all minorities in Muslim countries. Let this be a lesson to the world."


Muslims have participated in past interfaith services at the National Cathedral, but this will be the first time Muslims have planned and led their own service.
