Brazil - Few Imams, Closed Mosques

"One third of the mosques are closed due to the absence of imams," Al-Sadiq Al-Othmani, head of the Islamic Affairs Department at the Sao Paulo-based Center of Islamic Da`wah in Latin America, told IslamOnline. net over the phone.

There are mosques in all the major capitals of the Brazilian states and some cities in the interior.  In the city of Sao Paulo there are around ten mosques, including the Mosque Brazil, the first built in Latin America whose construction began in 1929.
