About us

“(lit is such a light) in houses, which Allah hath permitted to be raised to honor; for the celebration, in them, of His name: in them is He glorified in the mornings and the evenings, (again and again)”
(Holy Quran 24:36)
  One of the first tasks that our holy prophet undertook upon arriving in medina was to construct a mosque, masjid Quba. It is following the Sunnah of the prophet that Muslims build mosque(s) in the area where they live. Mankind owes to the child the best it has to give. Our children are a vital part of our community and they help to build for a great future of the community. We cannot think of a better gift to give our children and grandchildren than establishing a mosque and a school system where they can learn and upkeep the values of Islam and the Ahlul bait (as).
“When charity (alms) is delivered out of the hand of its owner, it (the thing being given) says five things: At first I was perishing and you gave me life; I was insignificant and you made me great; I was an enemy and you turned me into a friend you used to protect me then but now I will protect you up to the day of resurrection”
(Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w)
The Beginning
Imam Mahdi(as) Education Center was established in the Holy month of Ramadhan, 1424 (AH) - October 2004.
IMEC is a member of North American Shia Ithna-asheri Muslim Communities Organization (NASIMCO) and operates under the guidance of our Shia marjeya.
  The center has a large hall for the men, and a smaller hall which can, sufficiently hold 200 persons. The ladies section has a hall which can accommodate about 150 persons and a playroom for the children.
“He who is sure about the divine rewards will be more generous”
(Imam Ali Ibne Musa Al-Ridha (as)
