Awad said the home of CAIR's Oklahoma chapter board chair, Saad Mohammed, was destroyed while his family sought shelter from the tornado in a closet. No one in the family was injured.
"CAIR-Oklahoma will coordinate with disaster officials to help facilitate the Muslim community's role in the recovery effort," said the chapter's executive director Adam Soltani.
CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
