Los Angeles Mosques

(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

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.

    • The verse is addressing Kaffirs. Only a follower of Ibn Muljam will use that verse on Muslims. Are you calling me a Kaffir?
    • I know about this problem. First of all, most people on earth are not good people. In western societies there are a lot of sick people, and they have hate in their hearts. Do not let this be a reason to feel bad or lower your level to their's. Just try to really care only about Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى and if you do this right you will see that it is the best anwser to all of this kind of problems.

      Second ; do your best to never assume. Maybe you feel like these people are acting rude and they do not like you, but are you sure ? Isn't there a other possibility ? So why assume ? Just worry about what you think and do, and getting closer to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى is always going to help you.
      Last point I want to say ; Be positive. Really positive in your heart and mind. You will see that these things will change. If you think most people hate you or do not like you or whatever, this will have a negative effect. 

      All praise to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى
    • Inshaallah Allah bless your mother with health
    • Shakir's translation is not always good I found out recently. Thought let you know
    • Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى himself has cursed different groups in Quran. Eg: Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 64:
      إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَعَنَ الْكَافِرِينَ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُمْ سَعِيرًا Surely Allah has cursed the unbelievers and has prepared for them a burning fire,
      (English - Shakir)
