(salam)

Dear all,

I am from UK and will be visiting Los Angeles soon inshallah. I am not a regular poster on this forum but have frequented it for many years (and prior to that was on shialink!)

Does anyone know of any Shia ithna asheri mosques in Los angeles or the surrounding areas. It would also be useful if anyone knows what languages are normally spoken during programmes e.g. english/farsi/arabic/urdu etc.

So far from shia.org i found 3 mosques which are:
Ja'faria Islamic Society
Shia Ithna-Asheri Islamic Jamaat of Los Angeles
Institute of Islamic Philosophy and Mystical Thought

Does anyone have any info on these mosques? Are they actually mosques!?

Also, is there any mosque which is generally considered the main focal point for the Shia community in LA? Where are Jumah prayers held?

Thanks very much

Here is the mosque (closest to Los Angeles) that I would recommend

Assadiq Foundation & City of Knowledge School

Phone: 909-392-0251
Fax: 909-392-0295
Directions: It is located on the corner of foothill and garey. 4 min. off 10 freeway.

Here is the one I go to:

This mosque (however) is about 1 hour south (of course, can vary quite a bit depending on traffic) from L.A. The one above is anywhere from 30-45 minutes (depending where you are in L.A.) from the City of Los Angeles.

I don't know much about L.A. proper, as I have always lived in the South Bay and Orange County.
