There's more to building a mosque in America than architecture and theology -- there's also politics. Back in 2004, Malik Ali and Dr. Muhamad Krad teamed up to construct a mosque in Orland Park, just about an hour southwest of Chicago. The two discovered that building a mosque was more difficult than they anticipated.
