Masjid Daarus Salaam, which translates to “house of peace,” was established more than a decade ago as a place of worship for the New Tampa Muslims community and as a learning center for people of all faiths to foster a better understanding of the Islamic religion. In order to serve the growing needs of the New Tampa community, a 7,500-square-foot building was recently erected on the mosque grounds. Not only does the mosque host communal prayers for the 5 daily prayers, it also features a part-time Quran/Arabic School and a community hall that is utilized for weekly programs. The mosque exists to bring the community together, and we welcome all of our neighbors to come visit us.
Daarus-Salaam is an institution dedicated to the betterment of Muslims and the society at large. We draw our strength and guidance from the Holy Qur`an and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be bestowed upon him.
Conveniently located on Morris Bridge Road, just north of the intersection at Cross Creek Boulevard, surrounded by a number of large housing communities and nearly adjacent to a shopping plaza that features a Publix grocery store, Masjid Daarus Salaam serves as the meeting place for the Islamic Society of New Tampa (ISONET). While the mosque is primarily a Muslim place of worship, we invite all those who are interested in learning about Islam firsthand to visit our mosque and get to know the Muslims of New Tampa.
The idea for ISONET was born about ten years ago, when a small group of Muslims would gather in their homes to pray together. As their numbers expanded, they purchased a property featuring an existing 2,000-square-foot building that was used as a mosque for several years. Today, a 7,500-square-foot, $1.6 million mosque stands on that same property, serving as the primary place of worship for the 2 to 3 thousand Muslims of the New Tampa and Wesley Chapel communities.
Purpose of Weekly Youth Halaqa
A weekly halaqa for youth is held at the mosque to establish a mutually supportive environment between the community’s Muslim youth and their local mosque. The halaqa exists to educate and entertain the youth within an Islamic environment that abides by the principles of the Quran and Sunnah.
We invite brothers who are in middle or high school to join this community youth halaqa every Friday after Maghrib prayer. Join us to meet new friends and learn about Islam through Quranic verses, the traditions of the Prophet (PBUH), and the stories of the Prophet’s companions, may Allah be pleased with them. You will become part of a brotherhood that focuses on enjoining the good and advising against the evil. Contact Sayeef Mirza (813) 777-9256 for more information.
Masjid Daaurs Salaam offers a variety of classes and Halaqas for adults and youth of both genders including:
