The Islamic Society of Nevada founded in 1975 by a handful students has its roots in the MSA. In 1984, some local residents established the Islamic Society of Nevada and in 1986 an apartment duplex was donated to the Society by a local doctor for prayer purposes. In 1993, the first phase of the construction of the mosque began and the first Jumma prayers began on the last Friday of Ramadan the same year in the mosque. In 1995, a school building was added to the mosque. The school attracted some 150 students by the end of 1996. Donated by the Shaikh Zahid family, the school consists of nine classrooms, a library, two bathrooms, a reception area and a social hall with a seating capacity of 500 people as well as a commercial kitchen. In 2003 the mosque further expanded and added a mezzanine floor with facilities for women. The mosque can now accommodate over 1000 people. The Eid prayers generally attract over 2000 people from all over Nevada. During the national crisis after 9/11, the Society played a prominent role in organizing several lectures on Islam and also had an anti-terror campaign. ISON organized the First Quran conference in 2003 attended by over 300 people. The conference was attended by 11 top Muslim scholars from the across the nation. The mosque regularly organizes educational seminars for Muslims and non-Muslims and is part of the Las Vegas community. Interfaith dialogue is one of the top priorities of the mosque.   Last updated 4 years ago

NR  Very nice masjid. Dr Aslam who is the imam is very knowledable and compassionate person. This masjid is conducting great programs every week. Also Every Friday night there is potluck dinner.

  I agree this Masjid is very unfriendly and their attitude when it comes to helping travelers or the poor of the community is in a word outrageous!

★★★  Gorgeous Masjid both inside and outside. Plenty of resources, even has a small bookstore in the lobby. Drawbacks are the Masjid is locked in between prayers and only certain members are allowed access. Very inconvenient and disappointing for a traveler to be told that they cannot come into the Mosque because it's "closed". Not a particularly friendly atmosphere
