Imamia Education Society is the Pakistani/Indian/Khoja group that meets periodically at Salem United Church (5300 East Florida Avenue, Denver, CO 80222). Our programs are almost always in English. The upcoming programs in the near future are as follows:

Eid Mairaj -- 6:00 pm on Saturday, August 2

Birth of Imam Hussain/Imam Sajjad -- 6:00 pm on Saturday, August 9

Birth of Imam Zaman -- 6:00 pm on Sunday, August 17

For more information, email IES_Denver (at) yahoogroups.com.

If you're looking for Farsi programs, the Al-Iman Center usually has programs on Thursday nights, I believe. They are located at 6850 East Evans Avenue, Denver, CO 80224.

There is also the Jaffari Islamic School, which has classes for kids ages 3-17. It takes place on Saturdays at Salem Church as well. (Right now, however, we are on summer break, but classes start up again towards the end of August.) Please email jaffari (at) yahoogroups.com for more information.

Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

Ma'salam,

Arsalan

They have a few Shia groups in Denver. They have (or at least had lol, but I'm sure they still have it) at least one Shia center. There is a sister on here who lives nearby there who can give you more info... next time she logs on I'm sure she'll see this thread..........

I live in Denver. We have a youth group called Al Mahdi Youth Foundation of Colorado, it's not the biggest youth group but Alhamdulilah i think it's pretty good. it's usually on sundays and we also have youth group events at times. If any of you are interested in coming, then insha'Allah PM me. :)

Salam to all,

I am moving to Denver and I know this thread is old but I was wondering if anyone knew any Shia masjids or centers in the city? I am fairly new to Islam so inshallah I was hopping to find an active community to help me continue my studies.

Thank you for any help,

Karim J. Brennan

    • Anthony Joshua is not a marquee name? After he beat the great Klitchko?
    • Why people make Islam so hard? No ideas. Is not hard. People just complicating stuff in my opinion. I don't see anything to support your claim.
    • Where is water cooked? This remind me the day the Syrians got into Europe and they where given bottles of water to drink and they started throwing the water away and then complained of being thirsty.
    • Salam. You asked a good question and I admire your sensitivity to the Holy Month of Muharram. A refrigerator is a necessity especially for someone who needs to store a medication cooler than room temperature. There is no problem with buying something you need in Muharram, just try to do your shopping before or after the 9th (Tasua) and the 10th (Ashura). Those two days are when Imam Hussein AS and his companions in Karbala lost their lives and we should honor them by mourning. 
    • Shi'as that look down upon you because of your name are probably unaware to the fact that the Imams named their children with your name as well. You are actually doing us a great service brother. Many Sunnis often ask the Shi'a why we don't name our children and follow the sunnah of the Imams who named their children 'Umar, 'Uthman, or Aisha. You are helping us prove that we do indeed name our children the way the Imams named their children (although these names are indeed seldom heard nowadays). It's true that such names have negativity associated with them because of certain personalities in Islam's history, but they are also associated with some of the greatest personalities as well. If you look at recent blog entries, brother Islamic Salvation has some great posts on 'Uthman b. Madh'un, a great companion of the Prophet. Imam Ali also named a son with your blessed name. - Abu al-Faraj said: Uthman b. Ali about whom it is narrated from Ali that he said: I name him with the name of my brother Uthman b. Madh`un.
