The Muslim Society of Rhode Island - Masjid Al-Rahman
History of the Masjid
The Masjid was established in 1999 under the name Masjid Al-Rahman to serve the Muslim community in the city of Pawtucket, RI and the surrounding areas. The Masjid was located in a modest location. The congregation as well as its activities outgrew that space quickly.
In 2005, with the help and blessings of Allah, the Masjid moved to the current building located at Dunnell Lane, Pawtucket, RI. In 2008, the Masjid was officially called the Muslim society of Rhode Island and became recognized as tax exempt nonprofit organization.
The community of Masjid Al-Rahman has purchased a land and is in the process of building a new Masjid in the Darlington neighborhood to house the growing community in the city and surrounding areas.
Activities Held at the Masjid
Since its inception Masjid Al-Rahman provided Daily, Jumuaa, Qiyam and Taraweeh prayers. Masjid Al-Rahman holda a series of weekly Halaqas or Lectures. Parallel to that, there is a monthly Quran Competition for the Kids.
It is worth mentioning that the Masjid represents a center for community gatherings and socialization; many social occasions, happy and otherwise, are celebrated in the Masjid. The weekly lecture, which covers a variety of Islamic studies, had attracted a large number of the community members. The Masjid also participated in many interfaith activities in the greater Providence and Attleboro areas. The Masjid is an active member of the Rhode Island Council for Muslim Advancement (RICMA).
The activities of the Masjid will be expended to accommodate the growing size and diversity of the community.
