ABOUT US

As a community, we adhere to the Quran and example of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessing be upon) and do so through the leadership and vision of Imam Warith Deen Mohammed (1933-2008). It is through this lense we strive to serve as a gem in the Phoenix community with Islamic prayer services, Islamic education classes, monthly charity events for the homeless, amongst many other activities and events.

WHAT IS ISLAM?

Islam simply means submission or surrender to the will of Allah (SWT). It is also derived from the word Salaam which means peace. A person who does this is considered a Muslim. There are five pillars of Islam that Muslims should adhere to or perform in the case of Hajj to strive to be the best Muslim they can be.

1. Shahadah ( Declaration of Faith) 

2. Salah ( Obligatory Prayer) 

3. Zakat (Charity)

4. Sawm ( Fasting )

5. Hajj ( Pilgrimage to Mecca)
