Any Shia Community in Melbourne/Palm Bay Florida

Recommended Posts

Salam, I am a student and I don't have a car. I was searching for a shia community centers around Melbourne, Florida ? I know the nearest one is in Orlando and it's 90 miles away. Since I don't have a car so I cannot go there.

Can anyone help me to get in touch with Shia communities/familes near Melbourne Florida?

There is a big Shia population just north of Orlando in the Sanford/Lake Mary area. They're mostly Khojas and Indians (with a few Lebanese families). They just built a beautiful new masjid! Definitely try to check it out one day!

    • It is not just information (khabar), it is knowledge. How this knowledge relates to deeds can be understood with the help of these verses: Surah Ar-Room, Verse 7:
      يَعْلَمُونَ ظَاهِرًا مِّنَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَهُمْ عَنِ الْآخِرَةِ هُمْ غَافِلُونَ They know the outward of this world's life, but of the hereafter they are absolutely heedless.
      (English - Shakir) Surah Ar-Room, Verse 8:
      أَوَلَمْ يَتَفَكَّرُوا فِي أَنفُسِهِم مَّا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ وَأَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ النَّاسِ بِلِقَاءِ رَبِّهِمْ لَكَافِرُونَ Do they not reflect within themselves: Allah did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them two but with truth, and (for) an appointed term? And most surely most of the people are deniers of the meeting of their Lord.
      (English - Shakir)  
    • I hope I can visit Cairo soon. 
    • I also love those stone mosques,  Cairo is full of them.
    • Well the Orthodox Church which I identify with does images and all that but I think it's ok but I'm quite critical when they start offering stuff to the images and statues of Jesus but if it's just acknowledged as a representation nothing more then it's ok to have them in the Church.
    • Masjid al Imamain al Hassanain Beirut southern suburb.
