Wisam Aldayyeni, a doctoral student in mechanical and computer engineering from Baghdad; Said Bakkar, a graduate student in physics from Amman, Jordan; Abdulrahman Alowais, a freshman studying aviation technology from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; and Tariq Khaaliq, from Carbondale, kneel in silent prayer February 1, 2016, at the Carbondale Muslim Center. “I believe now some of the U.S. citizens believe you’re ISIS if you say you’re Muslim,” Alowais said, “but we have verses in our Holy Quran that say if you kill one person for no reason, you kill all of mankind. If you help someone live, it’s like helping all humans live... In Islam you pray, you ask God for forgiveness, and you go out and try to make people happy.”
