Shia Centers In Miami?

13 posts in this topic

Salam Alikum,

Are there any shia centers/masjids in Miami (close to South Beach)? I will be there for couple of months and Muharram falls during that time. Also, is the area generally safe? I was looking for an apartment and most people who I spoke to said that neighborhood is dangerous. Any places i should avoid? Places to eat halal food? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sukran.

Same question for Orlando area? Any idea who heads the two major Shia Islamic centers there? Which one has English Muharram programs? Which one has Urdu and Farsi ones? Roughly how many shia In Orlando?

Salaams,

 

I know I got to this post late but I thought I'd respond for future refrence.  There are 3 Shia Mosques in the Orlando area as mentioned:

 

HIC, Husseini Islamic Center, Sanford FL (this is the one I go to)

Biggest Florida Shia Mosque, Ashura Occupancy reaches about 900 people, majority Khoja, English Lectures, and somtimes 25 mins or so Urdu lecture after English

 

JIC, Jaffaria Islamic Center, Kissimmee FL

Medium size, mostly Pakistani as far as I know, not sure of lecture language

 

IEC, Islamic Education Center, Orlando FL

Smaller, diverse, decent amount of arabs, I've been there once to give a presentation and I remember some guys talking about how they were from lebenon and the maatam was in farsi and a few notice boards were written in Arabic so I think its more Arabs there.  Very nice community and show great hospitality.

I moved. But if you are part of that community there then Allah save us all. At the very least that community needs to know about hijab.
