Midtown Manhattan is the heart of the city of New York. There is a large community of Muslims working in the surrounding area. In the year of 1990, some of the community members realized that we needed a place to perform Salatul-Jummah. For this purpose, they arranged a small place at 80th Madison Ave and prayed in that area. After a couple of years the place was evacuated by the landlord, so they arranged a new place in a hotel. They rented a floor and began to perform their salat at the new location. After two years this place was also evacuated by the hotel management. They then arranged a new place for Friday prayers in St. Baptist church at 30th between 7th and 8th ave. In the year 2000, the committee decided that they required a proper place for prayer, in which Muslims can perform salat five times a day. Since the amount of people increased day by day, the hall could not accommodate everyone. They arranged a place to buy, to set up a masjid. It was worth $ 2.9 Million. ALHAMDULILLAH in 2003, the committee got possession of this place with the name of MASJID AR RAHMAN.
