- We say NO to fanaticism, and dictatorship in the name of religion.
- We believe in volunteerism, cooperation, forgiveness, tolerance, compassion, and action rather than words.
- Our Masjid is our place of gathering, learning, sanctity, and a place for connecting with Allah SWT and the community. A place to cultivate hassanat (good deeds) for the eternal life hereafter.
Russellville is a small and beautiful Arkansas university town. It’s the home of Arkansas Tech University which offers variety of courses to students coming from various parts of the world.
The number of Muslims in Russellville has significantly increased in the past few years and the total population of Muslims here has reached close to 250. This includes families, businesses, teachers and students.
For the past 20 years the obligatory prayers and the Jumuah (Friday) prayers were being observed at a small room at the university. This had helped the community tremendously and we are very thankful to the ATU for giving us the opportunity to practice our faith. However, due to this increase in community and help that it would create for Muslims in the neighboring counties and cities to come pray Eid prayers, break their fast during Ramadan and pray Jumuah (Friday) prayers we decided to have our own masjid.
Who is behind this effort?
We are local brothers, university student association members and employees of the power plant and ATU.
Profiles and Shurah member information coming soon.
