Our Beliefs & Values

The Five Pillars of Islam are the framework of the Muslim life.  They are the testimony of faith, prayer, giving zakat (support of the needy), fasting during the month of Ramadan, and the pilgrimage to Makkah once in a lifetime for those who are able.

Shahadah: Faith

Shahadah, the testimony of faith is saying with conviction, La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammadur rasoolu Allah.  This saying means “There is no true god (deity) but God (Allah), and Muhammad is the Messenger (Prophet) of God.”  

Salah: Prayer

Muslims perform five prayers a day.  Each prayer does not take more than a few minutes to perform.  Prayer in Islam is a direct link between the worshipper and God.  There are no intermediaries between God and the worshipper.

Zakat: Charity

All things belong to Allah, and wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust.  The original meaning of the word zakat is both ‘purification’ and ‘growth.’  Giving zakat means ‘giving a specified percentage on certain properties to certain classes of needy people.

Sawm: Fasting

Every year in the month of Ramadan, all Muslims fast from dawn until sundown, abstaining from food, drink, and sexual relations. By cutting oneself off from worldly comforts, even for a short time, a fasting person gains true sympathy with those who go hungry, as well as growth in his or her spiritual life.

Hajj: Pilgrimage

The annual pilgrimage. Hajj, to Makkah is an obligation once in a lifetime for those who are physically and financially able to perform it.  About two million people go to Makkah each year from every corner of the globe. 

“I heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say: ‘Whoever builds a masjid (mosque) in which the Name of Allah is mentioned, Allah will build a house for him in Paradise.'” (Sahih)

History

Masjid Al-Qur’an comes from humble beginnings being officially established in the Month of Ramadhan 2001 under the leadership of Imam Tajiddin J. Muwwakkil. When the name Masjid Al-Qur’an was presented, it was unanimously agreed upon by all members. Our utmost vision for Masjid Al-Qur’an was to promote the Qur’an and Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) and support the growth of Al-Islam in the metropolitan area.

Our first Jumu’ah was held at the John Berdine Neighborhood Center, located at 215 Lakewood Way, Atlanta, Georgia. One year later we relocated to 1303 Metropolitan Parkway, Atlanta, Georgia in a loving and blessed environment where we began growing and strengthening our community.

Masjid Al-Qur’an has celebrated the Blessed Month of Ramadhan by observing Iftar and Taraweeh prayers every night. While searching for a building, our initial intent was to establish a masjid in the East Point area, but that was not meant to be. Allah (SWT) had other plans for us.

On December 1,2006, w1, 2006ived our Certificate of Occupancy at 500 McDonough Boulevard, S.E., Atlanta, Georgia, our present location, where we have continued to strive in the Cause of Allah.

Masjid Al-Qur’an was established upon and continues to follow the principles of Qur’an and Sunnah. We believe every striving Muslim should have the opportunity to be in an environment that promotes Islamic growth and development.

For all people wishing to learn about Al-Islam and Muslims, Masjid Al-Qur’an has endeavored to also create an open door policy for those sincerely seeking to know more about the faith of the Muslims.

 Masjid Al-Qur’an has always welcomed leaders and followers of other faiths to come share in open discussions of the world’s religions.
