Erie Masjid History

The Masjid organization was originally started as a Muslim Student Association (MSA) at Gannon University. A room was provided by the university for Jumua prayers. After growing in members, organization relocated to a small room on Parade Street. Once the organization became larger, it was moved to a new building on 12th and State Street.

In 1997, organization divided into two groups. Sunni and Shia. Sunni group established the Islamic Association of Erie and moved to a new house on 2410 Holland Street. In 2009, the current location, 2419 Holland Street  building across from the old Masjid was purchased. Alhamdulillah, there are approximately 250 registered members.

Imam Abdallah is serving as the volunteer Imam.
