Children reenact pilgrimage
BEAUMONT- The Islamic Center of the Triplex hosted a reenactment of a pilgrimage Muslims are required to take once in their lifetime.
The reenactment taught adults and kids about the Muslim journey as children walked through stations to learn the steps of the pilgrimage.
The center's religious director, Daniel Abduallah Hernandez, said it was a way to teach the youth about historical events.
"It's a challenge for the youth to live a fast paced life and then, you know, inculcate in them the spiritual elements that make them see life from many different perspectives," Hernandez said.
It was the center's second year hosting a reenactment.
