AL WAHID Masjid & Community Centre was a vision started by VIVA ISLAM , a registered charity, in the United Kingdom in 2010.
VIVA ISLAM has been doing Charity & Da’wah projects in Mexico since 2009 and with only a few Muslim reverts in Rosarito, B.C., Mexico at the time, they had the vision to build the first purpose built Masjid & Community Center in the state of Baja California Mexico, it will be the hub for our projects in Mexico.
Mexico presents challenges on many levels, there are new reverts to islam every day with less than 0.5% of the population who are muslim. The center will hold activities to engage both Muslim and non Muslim communities to interact and work collectively together in our project, providing correct and beneficial information on Islam.
At present there is very little support available for new Muslims, leading to often poor, inadequate information and services for both the growing Muslim community and for those who wish to find out more about Islam.
Daw'ah activities invite and inspire people to learn about Islam, we aim to carry out activities ourselves as well as to work strategically with key organisations to help deliver the message of Islam that is of positive benefit to the people and communities. The center will allow to provide structured classes for new muslims in arabic, Quran and other beneficial lessons to help improve their knowledge in practicing Islam. We aim to provide basic classes in english for under privileged Muslim and non Muslim, as well as classes for new generation of Muslims borm in Mexico, which will run parallel to state education.
