Masjid-ul Muâ€™mineen, located at 8875 Benning Drive (off West Bellfort at India Center), Southwest Houston, Texas TX 77031-2441, is one of the distinct Masajids of Houston. It has been providing for the past twenty years religious, cultural, social, and relief services to not only Muslims, but non-Muslims. Its activities are organized by the Nigerian Muslim Association of Greater Houston (NMA). Originally it started with a community of around 1,000 persons, which have now increased to around 45,000.
One of the major programs of Masjid-ul Muâ€™mineen is the Relief Project. Through this, all the Zakat, Sadaqat, Fitra, and general donation money received to assist those in needs, Masjid-ul Muâ€™mineen distributes those resources in most transparent and organized manner.
Every year after Eid, Masjid-ul Muâ€™mineen Relief Project, organizes an impressive and much needed program for the refugees, who have come to Houston from various Muslim countries and distribute Eid Gifts & have nice luncheon for the families.
This year a different program was arranged for the Somalian Refugees in Houston. Instead of Masjid-ul Muâ€™mineen organizing the program, they asked the Somalian Refugees to organize the program themselves. Over the years, the Somalian refugees community have organized themselves and have formed an association called â€œThe AL-Qamar Cultural And Educational Foundationâ€.
So Masjid-ul Muâ€™mineen Relief Project gave all the resources to The AL-Qamar Cultural And Educational Foundation, like the sound system and the Community Hall besides Masjid-ul Muâ€™mineen, food for luncheon, gifts for children, and so on; and asked them to arrange their program themselves.
The AL-Qamar Cultural And Educational Foundation organized a excellent program of Quran recitation, supplications, Q-&-A session about social, cultural, and family needs of the community, refreshments, gifts for children & families, and much more. This very well arranged and much needed program started around 10am and went till 3pm.
Our media outlet congratulates Masjid-ul Muâ€™mineen for empowering another upcoming Somalian refugees community and their organization The AL-Qamar Cultural And Educational Foundation. This collaboration is not seen much around us and need to be appreciated and acclaimed.
Everyone in the community is being encouraged to visit Masjid-ul Muâ€™mineen and learn about the regular positive activities. For more information, one can visit http://masjidulmumineen.org/
