Masjid Miami Gardens
Masjid Miami Gardens, completed in 1997, is located on the border between Broward and Miami-Dade Counties and serves Muslims living in these two areas. The mosque is 2,500 square feet and the land owned by this community is 10,000 square feet. It is the largest mosque in South Florida and prides itself on accommodating ethnically and theologically diverse Muslims. A large green carpet with many yellow lines (saf) covers the mosque?s floor. The places during prayer for Muslim men and women are separated with a fabric curtain. Both Muslim men and women have their own door entry and their own place for wudhu (ablutions). Beside the mosque is a house for mosque keepers and an office. In front of the mosque is a huge parking lot and a basketball court. This mosque, with Masjid Miami, is organized by a committee called the Muslim Association of South Florida and is associated with the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America). This committee consists of a chair, general secretary, and financial secretary, and organizes everything related to the two mosques. The committee, whose membership is open to every Muslim, changes every two years.
