This building wasn't meant to be a mosque, but its turn-of-the-century architecture just happens to look like one. Purchased in the mid-1990's for $600,000, this mosque is one of the largest in Northern California and is located in downtown Oakland. Although the congregation is primarily Persian and Shi'a, the community welcomes the participation of all Muslims and is an active member of the Oakland interfaith community. A large banquet hall in the basement is the site of frequent cultural events and weddings, while the main auditorium has an impressive (but unusable) pipe organ in the back. The prayer room on the top floor is open to both men and women, and there is no barrier. Women form lines behind the men's line. Lunch is offered following Juma' prayers and men and women interact frequently. Both men and women serve on the Board of Directors and Board of Trustees. This mosque is particularly welcoming to non-Muslim individuals, as well as non-Shi'a Muslims, and is the only Islamic member of the Oakland Coalition of Congregations.  Last updated 3 years ago

★★★★★  ICCNC is not just a masjid but a cultural center which hosts many diverse programs and speakers from all schools of thought. They have a large banquet hall with a stage and built in sound system. They also have their own cafe and separate prayer and meeting rooms. The Facility is a historic building in Oakland. The only downsides are the limited parking and not the very best neighborhood. But overall an excellent facility and I encourage all Muslims regardless of madhab or school of thought to go and visit!
