DETROIT — Three suburban Detroit Muslim worship centres plan to hold a total of six services to mourn the loss of one of Shiite Islam's highest authorities.
Services will be held nightly from Tuesday through Sunday for the Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah. The 75-year-old cleric died Sunday in Lebanon after a long illness and was buried Tuesday.
The Detroit-area services will rotate among the Islamic Institute of Knowledge in Dearborn, Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights and Islamic Center of America in Dearborn.
Imam Mohammad Ali Elahi of the Islamic House of Wisdom says it's important to include several mosques because Fadlallah preached unity among people.

I have an idea. Since there are so many radical Muslims in Dearborn, and since so many of them want to see the U.S. destroyed, perhaps we should let them pull the strings of the Dearborn Police Department. That way, Christians are sure to get fair treatment.
