  Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, outreach director at Dar al-Hijrah talk about how the Muslim community has changed since 9/11.

In the 10 years since 9/11, Muslims in Northern Virginia have seen as much scrutiny from federal law enforcement and the national media as any community in the country. And that attention has forced Muslim groups to evolve and adapt. Jonathan Wilson visits a local mosque to find out how this community has changed, and how Muslims are approaching the upcoming anniversary of 9/11.
