Masjid Al-Islam was established by 8 men and women in November, 1987, to provide a place of worship for the Muslims in the Greater New Haven area.
Masjid Al-Islam has been in it current location of 624 George St., in the Dwight neighborhood of New Haven, since February 1995.
Over the past several years, the Masjid has made an important effort to work cooperatively with its neighbor, the Hospital of Saint Raphael, and the City of New Haven to revitalize the surrounding Dwight neighborhood. These activities lead the City of New Haven to cite the Masjid as a positive force for community stabilization in its 1998 Greenwood Street District plan. Also, in recognition of the important contributions that Masjid Al-Islam has made, in the summer of 2002, the city of New Haven named a corner next to the Masjid “Nabi Muhammad Corner.”
