About Masjid Al-Huda

Masjid al-Huda is a non-profit religious organization dedicated to establishing a holistic Muslim community, promoting good understanding of Islam and building positive relations among Muslims and non-Muslims.

A Masjid is the most important institution in an Islamic community. There, a Muslim rekindles his spirituality, strengthens his relationship with his Creator, meets his fellow Muslim brothers/sisters and renews his sense of belonging. Masjids in the US play a special multi-faceted role of not only being a place for a means of worship but much more. It’s a symbol of our identity and upholds the integrity of the Muslim community.
