First off I am retired and have no need for additional income. I'm looking at some some houses in the NW section, not far from the old Grammar school in the 300 block of Grace.

My big concern is how will a Sunni Muslim be accepted in the Area.

My next concern is trying to adapt to city living. I'm a country boy and do not like the noise of large cities. However, for health reasons I have a need to move to a city to be near medical help.

Yes, you just might be crazy.

Second thought, pretty darn sure you are CRAZY.

Oh wait, I see you are in North Dakota? Hey, living in Flint will be a cake walk...Come on over.

Have you considered Ann Arbor? Lots of country style living and stiil just minutes from some of the best medical care in the country.

Thought of Ann Arbor but at my age I need to find something I can afford to buy outright. I find quite a few in Flint I have enough in savings to buy outright. That is my main reason for considering Flint. My med care will be in the VA. The out patient clinic in Flint seems up to snuff and the Med Center in Detroit is close enough if need be. I'm the VA's worse patient. If they can't handle me as an out patient, I'll stay home. Outside of general outpatient stuff I refuse all treatment.

Just hope I can tolerate moving south to a warm climate. I just might miss the ND weather.

Are you aware of Dearborn, MI? They have a large Muslim population. Hamtramck also.

The problem is the Mosques in Dearborn are all Shi'te. There are more differences between Sunni and Shi'ite than there are between Roman Catholics and Mormons. The Mosque on the edge of Flint on Corunna Rd seems to be Sunni. Alrhough I am not certain. I sent an email to the Imam asking what Madhab they follow.

I have not checked on the Mosque or Mosques near Hamtramck.

Very high crime and too few police on top of it. Very dangerous. Don't do it.

That is a concern I have. But then again there are dangers I face living in the Boon Docks, where I currently live I can not expect any help for hours in the event of an emergency. There is one Sheriff and I believe 2 deputies for the entire county. It would be at least 2 hours for an Ambulance, fire truck or law enforcement to reach me in the event of an emergency. Us country folks are quite self sufficient out of necessity.

Thanks

I just came off of that site. There are 3 Sunni Mosques near Flint. The one on Corunna Rd is Sunni.

I grew up in Saginaw and am very familiar with Flint. There is no way that I would move to Flint (or even back to Saginaw). If you do move to Flint definitely stay out of the North and the East.
