Mosque: “A symbol of the rise of Islam”

Masjid Omar ibn Al-Khattab, Los Angeles, California, USA


In Ramadaan of 1414 (1994 CE) Hijri, Masjid (Mosque) Omar formally opened its doors. It was the culmination of over fifteen years of work by hundreds of volunteers to establish the masjid. The land for Masjid Omar was bequeathed by an old woman in 1398 Hijri (1977 CE) who desired to help the cause of Islam. Her donation was followed in turn by donations from untold numbers of benefactors to build the masjid on the land. The masjid is a symbol of the rise of Islam in Los Angeles.

Masjid Omar is located very close to USC, near the corner of Vermont and Exposition.
