BEAUMONT,TX–The growth in the Muslim community in Beaumont has created an acute shortage of Muslim prayer spaces in the area. This is set to change with the Islamic Society of Triplex announcing that it will complete the construction of its new mosque before the beginning of Ramadan in 2016.
“We ran out of space,” said mosque board member Shahid Rafiq in an interview to the Beaumont Enterprise. “This is long due.”
The $2 million expansion project when completed will be a big boost to the community.
