About Masjid Al-Mu'min of Pittsburgh
Masjid al Mumin
The core mission of Masjid Al Mu'min is to provide valuable services to the Muslims in the Pittsburgh area and members of the local community. These services are meant to foster a strong sense of family and community, and to provide a spiritual balance in ones personal life which also serves to deal with a sometimes overwhelming world. Many people have benefited from the services of Masjid on a regular basis and we have felt honored to be of service to our community. In addition, Masjid Al-Mu'min will be implementing the 10 Point Madinah Program. These points are not new, nor unknown but are for the most part neglected and must be revived in order to keep our community thriving.
We are pleased to announce the IRS has determined that Masjid al-Mu'min is exempt from federal income tax under 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). Those who give sadaqah (donations) can deduct these contributions under IRC Section 170.
- Imam Na'eem Abdullah
Masjid al-Mu'min is what some may call a “Sunni” community. “Sunni” is short for “Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah” which means “People of the Sunnah (the Prophetic Way) and the Community.”
“Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah” has been defined by the classical scholars as those who are Ash’arī or Maturidī in Aqeedah (Islamic Belief); Hanafī, Mālikī, Shāfi'ī or Hanbalī in Fiqh (outward practice); and those who follow any of Turūq us-Sūfiyyah (the spiritual paths).
We at Masjid al-Mu'min are Ash’arī in Aqeedah, Mālikī in Fiqh and Qaadiriyyah in Tareeqah. This is what we adhere to and what we teach as it has reached us by the route of the great African Mujaddid (Islamic Reviver of the Faith) - Shehu ‘Uthmān Dan Fodiyo (may Allah envelop him in His Mercy) (d. 1232). This is what we are upon. We are grateful to Allah for Allah’s guidance and we are unapologetic about it.
