Imam Musa Abdalla 

Imam Musa Abdalla became a Hafiz at the age of ten. Since then the Imam has lead the prayers in Ramadan Around the world, in seven states and three countries.  With over a decade and a half of experience in service, our Imam is a valuable asset in our times. He produces Huffaz (those who memorize the entire Qur’an) and teaches Arabic syntax, exegesis and eschatology. He has a masters of education from The Azhar University and his  undergraduate degree is from Pennsylvania State University in Organizational Leadership. Merging the Eastern wisdom with Western thought our young Imam created an amalgam that welcomes all from every walk of life. He aspires to build an Islamic University and is starting with the Maktab (A weekday school) that teaches the trivium and quadrivium along with Quran and Sunnah.  Both traditional and modern, our classes can be found onsite and on zoom. The Imam prefers to live a private life. If you would like to reach him please make an effort to come to the masjid for prayer or make an appointment with the Islamic center via the contact number or email.
