وَأَنَّ الْمَسَاجِدَ لِلَّهِ فَلَا تَدْعُوا مَعَ اللَّهِ أَحَدًا

“And the places of worship are for Allah (Alone): So invoke not anyone along with Allah.” Qur'an 72:18


Manassas Mosque (Masjid) is established to serve humanity according to the teachings of the Qur’an which contains the laws of our Creator, Allah (SWT) and the Sunnah or traditions of our beloved Messenger Muhammad (SAWA).

To be in contact with the Muslims of the world and to promote their useful ideas is one of our primary concerns.  In our actions and duties we must remember:

 

 ۖ   يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّ‌سُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ‌ مِنكُمْ  
  فَإِن تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُ‌دُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّ‌سُولِ إِن كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ‌ ۚ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ‌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلًا

 

“O You who believe!  Obey Allah and Obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you.  If you differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger if you do believe in Allah and the last day.  That is best, and most suitable for final determination.” Qur'an 4:59

PURPOSE

The Masjid is a place of worship to Allah (SAWA) in all aspects of life.  An important message is that it has direction (Mehrab toward the Ka’ba of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S.) which has no Mehrab.  Rather it is the center of all nations which brings us to:

  • We as Muslims must concentrate globally but work locally
  • Promote the concept of unity of God’s law for all people
  • Kutbahs, lectures, discussions must be factual, balanced and without bias towards any ethnicity, race or school of thought
  • Accepting that education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance
  • Work with other Ibrahamic Faiths with the aim of bringing peace, understanding, and justice in our community, society, and the world
  • The Islamice rules for Adab (behavior) and Islamic dress code with will be adhered to by the members and guests or visitors when participating in programs and activities.  Certain exceptions may be allowed in case of non-Muslim visitors regarding the head cover
