Assalamu Alaikum (Peace Be Upon You). Our Masjid community is a beautiful mosaic of people from all walks of life and, as such, we embrace new Muslims and are pleased to welcome you to our community.
We are aware, understand and share the hardships of new Muslims and other Muslims with Arabic language limitations. New Muslims (and many not so new Muslims) need special attention in their quest for the understanding of the Islamic principles. Our community offers an Islam101 class in English for new Muslims and anyone who wants to learn more about Islam. The main focus of the class is on the understanding and application of Allah’s Revelations and the Sunna (ways) of our Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him. Efforts are also focused to meet the personal needs of individuals. We offer Arabic Language Instruction for those wishing to learn to read, understand and converse in Arabic and, as well, offer English as a Second Language Instructions. These classes are taught by bilingual instructors. Also, the Khutba (Reminder) during Friday Prayers are offered both in Arabic and English.
In accordance Islam, our community emphasizes respect towards the plurality of faith, culture, ethnicity and to preserve peace and justice for all of humanity.
