Where is the local Masjid?

November 19, 2005

Asalaam 'Alaikum:

I've spoken previously about trying to get in contact with muslims in your area. Sometimes that may seem easier said than done. Insha'Allah - I will provide you with links to sites that have lists of all the masjids in your area:

Find Muslims in Your Area (Worldwide)

Mosque Locator (Islamicity)

Islamic Organizations for US & Canada (Islamic Finder)

Masjid Addresses in the US & Canada (MSA National)

Hopefully - these links will help you find someone in your local community who can help guide you through this journey. It really is helpful to find someone to talk to and ask any questions that may come to mind - that's why I think talking one-on-one with someone is important. I have also found that especially in the beginning - it is really important to feel like you are part of a community - that you are not alone. There are many good Muslim brothers and sisters who are more than happy to welcome you into their community and help in any way they can. However, we need to make the first step . . . call the local masjid and see if there is anyone available to speak with you about Islam. Usually, a lot of masjids have a committee or group who are in charge of dawah and helping new Muslims. See if this is available.

May Allah make this journey full of rewards and blessings for you. May He bring people into your life who will help you and guide you properly. Amin.
