Masjid Muath Bin Jabal, in Detroit, is located at the center of a neighborhood that is almost entirely Yemeni. Established in 1976, the mosque began as a prayer space in a coffee house. It is housed today in an old church building with an attached charter school. The sanctuary of the church has been substantially enlarged and now serves as a prayer space that can easily accommodate a thousand men. A large space for women has been set aside upstairs. Large Yemeni congregation.
