General Information

Al-Masjid al-Awwal is located in the historic Hill District of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and was the first masjid established in the state of Pennsylvania. We ascribe to the understanding of Islam upon the pristine way of the Prophet Muhammad (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) and his noble Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them all), as understood and implemented by the early righteous imams of the first three generations of goodness (may Allaah have Mercy on them). Believing and practicing as the Companions did is true guidance according to the Book of Allaah, and all other ways lead to disunity and argumentation:
