In their tiny apartment just outside Minneapolis, Sarah Alfaham directs her husband Mohamed Ahmed to hold up the gold curtains she picked up at Walmart.
She takes a look.
"I like it," she says.
With thumbtacks, string and dowels, Alfaham fashions a canopy in the corner of their living room with a homemade navy blue and gold "Ramadan Mubarak" sign underneath. On the floor is a prayer rug.
"It's just really creating a mosque feel inside your house in a sense. I don't know how else to do it," she says with a laugh.
