NR  I went to this masjed for Isha prayer and found our that ladies prays beside or very close to men, I think they are Ahbash or Habashi. I decided not to visit any more

NR  many people have different views about the qibla in north america it became easier for me to pick a side when i saw a stamped paper from the highest level scholar in the famous azhar school in egypt that the direction in north america for prayer is south east,

★★★★★  This is a beautiful mosque with lots of character. The prayer area is huge with a soaring dome and large ornate windows. When my wife and I visited, we saw children playing in the small outdoor space and were welcomed by a sister there who was pleasant and helpful. The main prayer area is not separated by a barrier but men and women keep some distance between them for prayer. As we were there during a quiet moment, my wife and I were able to pray together and no one bothered us about praying northeast although their qibla is southeast. The congregation is diverse and the local community is very active and close-knit.

NR  I just want to point out about the comment reagarding the correct Qibla direction. One post implies that Southeast is the correct direction. This is often a source of confusion when one determines diection based on a flat map in a book. The correct way is to look at it in three dimensions. Just hold a piece of string on the globe with ends on the two desired locations. For Philadelphia, you will find Northeast as the direction of shortest distance to Makkah.

★★★★★  I've been going to this musalla for over 12 years and in my opinion they have the best and most knowledgeable teachers in the city. Plus, it's one of only 3 Islamic centers praying in the proper direction in the city that I know about which is Southeast.

★★  I used to go to this masjid. The building is very beautiful and the sisters that work there are very nice. However, they are not praying in the proper direction, in spite of this I still would go for Jumah because Jamia is not as nice and it is all in Arabic... but I stopped going to AICP when the Imam stated in a Jumah khutbah that we should celebrate mawlid- Muhammad SAWS birthday. BIDAH!

I will no longer go there because of that.

May Allah guide us all.

★★★★★  Very nice, welcoming people. Beautiful building. Women have active roles in running the mosque.

★★★★★  Agree with LeenaJ.. Crowd is diverse, very helpful and very welcoming. My husband and I had our nikah ceremony here and everyone was fantastic.

The first time I went here, my female friend and I were new-ish converts and had never been to a mosque before. The sisters (and brothers) there were so helpful and welcoming, we felt comfortable immediately.

Would attend here more often except it's not very close to home. They offer many classes, are right across from a great helal restaurant (Saad's) and another mosque.

If you're considering going for the first time, I suggest you give it a try!
