Muslims in Cuba pray to mark the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in Old Havana.

Cuba is officially a secular country, but a growing community of Muslims is literally gaining more space to practice their faith.

The city of Havana is soon to witness the construction of the country's first mosque.

TRT World's Anelise Borges met with some members of the community to learn what life is like for the more than 3,000 Muslims living in Cuba.
