Umm Ul Qura was founded in December 2014 by the local muslim community in Alexandria. The center now has daily 5 times prayers, Friday congregational prayers, Eid prayer, Taraweeh in Ramadan. As well as Quran classes throughout the week.

The center was purchased for $550,000. Alhamdulillah, with the Help of Allah and all generous donors the Masjid building has been fully paid off.

We are now planning to start a full-time Islamic School based on accredited US State Core Curriculum and Islamic Curriculum along with an optionally integrated Tahfidh Quran (Memorization) program within the K-12 program.

When you visit the center don't forget to donate:
