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.

    • Anthony Joshua is not a marquee name? After he beat the great Klitchko?
    • Why people make Islam so hard? No ideas. Is not hard. People just complicating stuff in my opinion. I don't see anything to support your claim.
    • Where is water cooked? This remind me the day the Syrians got into Europe and they where given bottles of water to drink and they started throwing the water away and then complained of being thirsty.
    • Salam. You asked a good question and I admire your sensitivity to the Holy Month of Muharram. A refrigerator is a necessity especially for someone who needs to store a medication cooler than room temperature. There is no problem with buying something you need in Muharram, just try to do your shopping before or after the 9th (Tasua) and the 10th (Ashura). Those two days are when Imam Hussein AS and his companions in Karbala lost their lives and we should honor them by mourning. 
    • Shi'as that look down upon you because of your name are probably unaware to the fact that the Imams named their children with your name as well. You are actually doing us a great service brother. Many Sunnis often ask the Shi'a why we don't name our children and follow the sunnah of the Imams who named their children 'Umar, 'Uthman, or Aisha. You are helping us prove that we do indeed name our children the way the Imams named their children (although these names are indeed seldom heard nowadays). It's true that such names have negativity associated with them because of certain personalities in Islam's history, but they are also associated with some of the greatest personalities as well. If you look at recent blog entries, brother Islamic Salvation has some great posts on 'Uthman b. Madh'un, a great companion of the Prophet. Imam Ali also named a son with your blessed name. - Abu al-Faraj said: Uthman b. Ali about whom it is narrated from Ali that he said: I name him with the name of my brother Uthman b. Madh`un.
