Serving the Lower Naugatuck ValleyAbout Us
Masjid Samiya was established in September 2017 as a project of An-Noor International Foundation, Inc (ANIF). ANIF is a proven, well-respected, and charitable organization dedicated to promoting the Islamic faith.
Masjid Samiya serves the needs of the community of Muslims in the Ansonia, Shelton, Derby, Trumbull, Orange and Milford areas as a place of worship and Islamic community center.
We offer the five daily, Jumu’ah, Taraweeh and Eid prayers. We also provide Ramadan activities and serve as a center for Islamic propagation and community center.
We need your help!
Masajid without a doubt are the heart and soul of a Muslim community. However, Islamic centers and masajid across the U.S. that are directly run by youth are a rarity. We truly believe the way forward is to have youth, who are traditionally trained in the Islamic sciences, and are cognizant of the challenges that our generation faces, at the forefront of our masajid. This is precisely the vision we have for this project. It is what we like to describe - "The first youth led masjid in the state of Connecticut". This is of course with the guidance of our mentors like Imam Zaid Shakir and others who paved the path for many years.
After purchase of this 9000 square foot building, the masjid still needs renovations in order to open fully. This is because the facility needs heating, carpeting, insulation, adequate bathrooms, and wudu areas. We are close to achieving the vision we have, yet are quite hindered until all renovations are complete.
We implore you all to donate generously to our cause.
