Jama Masjid Of Chicago


We welcome you to the Jama Masjid of Chicago, the biggest mosque in one of the largest and most populous cities in the U.S Chicago. A quick glimpse in the history of existing mosque shows an old parking structure of about 27,379 sq. ft. which was purchased about 32 years ago when Muslim population in U.S. in general and in Chicago in particular was still at an infancy. Allah SWT blessed few brothers with the vision of community life and concern for the growing Ummah in this city which had only few Muslims 30-35 years ago. At present Chicago has on the of the largest Muslim populations in the nation. According to some census Muslims growth in the U.S. is about 15% per year.

The 27,379 sq. ft. parking structure was converted half into masjid and the rest remained parking for over 3 decades. With this humble mosque in place, Muslims started migrating in to the surrounding areas as it happens around the oasis in the deserts. Present mosque is posing a big challenge to the needs of ever growing community in the city of Chicago. With intent to find an immediate solution to accommodate increasing number of Musalleen for prayers and with a vision to continue to provide for the growing numbers for the next few years, design of a bigger mosque is made and Alhamdulillah submitted to the City of Chicago for the permit process upon the approval to proceed with the construction.

Islamic Association For Palestine

Jamal Said, one of the current leaders at the mosque, was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas financing trial in Texas, which ended with sweeping guilty verdicts on 108 counts in late 2008. Past president, secretary and board member of the Mosque Foundation, Rafeeq Jaber, was the president of the Islamic Association for Palestine and the founder of the Chicago chapter of the IAP. Internal IAP memos and other pieces of evidence released during the HLF case in Dallas indicated that the IAP served as a Hamas support arm.

One of the mosque’s current Imam’s, Kifah Mustapha, was also listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee. A 1991 internal memo to the Palestine Committee members reveals that the members of this committee intended to further the Muslim Brotherhood’s goals “on the American front.”

In a deposition for Boim vs. Quranic Literacy Institute, Kifah Mustapha explained that he was a “registered agent for HLF in Illinois” from the mid 1990s until 2001 when HLF’s assets were frozen. During this time Mustapha acknowleged raising money for HLF.

What Are Congregational Prayers

They are prayers performed in a congregation led by an imam. It is considered more rewarding to perform the 5 daily prayers in a congregation in a mosque.
