Nigi Kapadia, prays at the Naples Islamic Center on a recent Saturday in Naples. Kapadia and other members of the center are observing Ramadan, the monthlong fast. A new two-room capacity in the worship center allows women to have their own space instead of worshipping behind a curtain at the back of the men's worship room. Kapadia, 30, says she has been coming to the center for the past year and notices an increase in female membership since the opening of the womens side. 'Last year, every Friday prayer, I felt alone,' Kapadia said. 'When this room opened, I felt I can come more often.' Lexey Swall/Staff
