Anybody In Amsterdam, Netherlands

Recommended Posts

Dear All, 


I wanted to ask if there is any center in Amsterdam, Netherlands where I can go for prayers, and/or attend majalis.

Your reply would be very much appreciated.


Best regards,


Rasheed Hussain

I looked through a few other threads, but I didn't find anything. I saw this on wiki, doesn't look promising:


The history of the settlement of the Twelver Shiites in the Netherlands goes back to the 1960s.[1] A small group of Pakistani-Indian Shiites came during the 1960s, the Pakistanis as refugees, the Indians came to work (the number of Indian-Pakistani in the Netherlands at the present time is around 500 individuals, they established a Husayniyya in Amsterdam in 1976 under the name of Idāra Ja'fariyya. This place is considered the first place for worship established by Twelver Shia community in the Netherlands.[1] This Husayniyya does not have a permanent place until the present time. The community hire a place only in the weekend from the community center in order to perform their religious and social occasions. This community has a permanent Husayniyya in the Hague under the name Mahfil-e-'Alī established in 1992.[1]

Wa alikum alsalam,


Sorry for late reply, I have already seen this thread.


I sent an e-mail to one of the islamic centers there about if there is a mosque there,

so they told me that there is a hussainiyah in Amsterdam.


Here is the page on facebook if you want to get some information:




There are majalis for 10 days in Arabic.


I hope this helps.

    • PM your poll idea to an active member of the development team. 
    • 110 Sunni religious scholars mentioned Ghadir event in their book. I really don't understand why Sunni Muslims pretend to be blind on these facts.
    • Lol where are you coming up with these ideas? I had one but I’m not allowed to make a poll up.
    • Living in less gravity or more radiation would necessitate adaptation. Either we would need to use technology to adapt, or we would need to evolve. 
    • One of the most important thing to consider would be that our Holy Prophet pbuh who did even not curse his worst enemies came out in a state when he was sick to chase everyone except a few out of Medina & cursed those who disobeyed him & did not leave Medina at once. "Make haste in joining Usamah's legion. May Allah curse whoever fags behind Usamah's army."   We all know that Abu Bakr and Umar were both supposed to be in that army under an eighteen year old which means they disobeyed the direct orders of the Prophet pbuh and were part of those who were cursed by the Prophet. Just imagine what is going to happen to those who are cursed by the Holy Prophet pbuh.  Now the point to consider is why would our Prophet pbuh take so much pain to make sure everyone he wanted was out of Medina in his final days? Could it be that he envisaged something like Saqifa happening that he wanted to make it a clear ground for Imam Ali's elevation?
