In spite of the terrorist acts committed by religious extremists, the Islamic population of Jamaica tries to keep up a peaceful environment where Muslims can live out their beliefs without harassment. It was 2:00 pm on a humid and almost still day. The Imam sat in his chair, almost unmoving for about 2 hours by this time. One of the devout Muslim men decided to rest before the afternoon prayer that was coming up. The Islamic Council's atmosphere is very relaxing and it is hard to deny the spirituality one experiences when sitting around in the midst of these people.
