Philadelphia Imams, Islam community react to mosque mass shootings in New Zealand

Across the city, there's a heightened sense of security and mourning following the mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand.

Friday prayer service went on as planned at Masjidullah Community Center Mosque, but leaders say their minds were on the attack.

"We feel really, really bad for them and their families and we're praying for them, but we're also praying for all of us because we're all one family," says Imam Adbul-Halim Hassan. "We're all affected by this, nobody is not affected by this senseless violence. I'm concerned."

Imam Hassan says their mosque has a number of security protocols in place, including all on-call security team.

While the attack brought in an outpouring of anger and sadness, he says it also brought in an overwhelming amount of support from other religions. Dozens within the Jewish community attended their Friday prayer to stand with them in solidarity.

"There are no words it's just kind of absolute silence because why another one," says Rabbi Barry Kenter, of Congregation Aath Jeshurun in Elkins Park. "It's important to demonstrate a shared humanity."

Philadelphia police said on Friday that they do not have any credible threats, but they are continuing to monitor the terrorist attack.

Officers are performing frequent checks on mosques and other houses of worship through the city and plan to have an increased presence at Friday night services.
