The Amazing Masjid

Until 1982, Muslim students and residents of Sacramento had to perform their prayers in a rented apartment. In 1984, the Muslim community purchased a 1.34-acre property with a small house, which served as a place of worship. The Masjid Annur Center (MAC) presently has five daily prayers. During Friday (jummah) prayers over 400 men, women, and children gather to worship. Various forms of Zakaat are collected and distributed on a regular basis.

Social services is the area of births, deaths, and marriages are part of the community support provided. A Quranic School for children is operated as well. The Mosque is the central point around which many community activities revolve. Due to the growth and an increasing demand for community oriented services the existing premises are much too small to cater to the needs of the people. To accommodate the growth of the community, a wooden deck was built behind the house. This proved to be ineffective especially during the rainy season. Later, a mobile home was added to solve that problem.

A bigger problem that we faced was the availability of enough parking spaces. The property had space for no more than thirty cars and was unpaved. This posed a problem especially during Friday prayer as people had to park a little far from the property. We had to provide enough rooms for approximately 120 students. It was impossible to use the house to accommodate all those students, so we were forced to reserve a few classrooms at a local college.

The overcrowding and the lack of adequate facilities have prompted the current MAC administration which is comprised of the broad trustees and the board of directors to seek innovative methods of relocation to serve the demands of the community. In mutual consultation with the community the current administration, with the help of Allah, bought a building with a lot of total size of 284,750sq.ft.
