Our Story

In response to the growing needs of our community, a dedicated group transitioned from a smaller space to our current, more spacious location. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved in this significant move; may Allah reward them all.

 

Our leadership is a blend of experienced members who have been integral in establishing this masjid, alongside new members from our current congregation, all working together to serve and support our community.

The masjid has flourished in the years since our move, becoming a beacon of faith and friendship in the community. The spirit of unity and cooperation that fueled our relocation continues to guide our path today. Our community has thrived, undertaking new initiatives, enhancing our programs, and expanding our reach while holding firm to our faith's spiritual and moral foundations. As we look to the future, we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead to grow, serve, and strengthen the bonds of community and faith together.
