about us

Masjid Muhajireen is a prayer hall for Muslims and gathering place to a diverse and dynamic community composed of, among others, indigenous Muslims and immigrants. The congregation is predominantly Afghan-Americans. The masjid is nestled on an acre-lot in a residential Tennyson-Alquire neighborhood.


The masjid consists of a nearly 3,000 sq. foot building providing a main musullah (prayer hall) and a private sister's musallah. Jummah (Friday) prayers are held weekly. The Khutbah (sermon) starts at 1:15 p.m. The Iqama (Friday prayer) is at 2 p.m. The sermon is in Farsi. Eid prayers, Taraweeh prayers, Iftaars, and other special Islamic and cultural events/holidays are also held at the Mosque of Muhajireen.


Masjid Muhajireen welcomes visitors at all times in order foster a culture of tolerance and understanding in the San Francisco Bay Area. The prayer times (shown on the frontpage) in particular, are excellent times to visit the center in order to meet local Muslims and observe Muslim's worship.
