Message From The President
The Muslim Society of Glendale Heights condemns all acts of violence perpetrated domestically and internationally by Muslims and Non-Muslims alike. We believe in love and peace for all. Darkness adds to darkness, light eliminates it. Violence adds to violence, peace eliminates it.
Whoever kills a soul unjustly or to spread corruption on the Earth, it is as if he has killed the entire humanity. And whoever saves a soul, it is as if he has saved the entire humanity. (Quran 5:32)
Good and evil cannot be equal. Repel evil with what is better and your enemy will become a close, protective friend (Quran 41: 34)
MUSLIM SOCIETY INC. on Bloomingdale Rd. had its humble beginnings in the early 90’s, stemming from the days of meeting in basements, family rooms, and rented office spaces. From the very beginning, MSI has been built upon the teachings of Islam. At it’s opening, MSI offered five time daily prayers and has now transformed into an active Islamic center. With the blessings of Allah, MSI has grown and continues to grow with the increase of the Muslim population in Glendale Heights and surrounding suburbs. In the early nineties, a few Muslim families settled in the Glendale Heights area. As there was no masaajid in the close vicinity to perform the 5 daily prayers, they decided to purchase a real estate office with the intention to soon construct a masjid. As Glendale Heights and the surrounding suburbs became saturated with Muslim families in the late nineties, the current building at 1785 Bloomingdale Road was renovated to accommodate the growing Muslim population. Today with the blessings of Allah Subhanahu Wataaala, MSI is a fully functional masjid where 5 times prayers and several events are held.
MSI holds a wide variety of services and programs, attracting several audiences to attend the Mosque. First and foremost, MSI holds the five daily prayers and two Friday prayers to accommodate the huge Muslim population of Glendale Heights and the surrounding suburbs. MSI also serves as an active dawah center with regular programs aimed at supporting and uplifting the refugee community and new reverts to Islam. Additionally, MSI has a food pantry which supplies food to a minimum of 50 families every month. On the education side, MSI runs a full-time Hifz school and a Sunday school order to protect the teachings of Islam by educating the youth. There are several services and programs hosted by MSI in order to educate and attract a wide-variety of audiences.
