Masjid Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq (مسجد ابو بكر) is an Islamic center serving as a masjid and a gathering place for the Muslim community in Hayward and the larger Bay Area.

 

The Islamic Center consists of a 11,000 sq. foot building providing a main musullah (prayer hall) and a private sisters’ musallah, a multipurpose meeting area, nearly 4,000 sq. feet of second-floor classrooms, office space, a library, and a warming kitchen.

 

Jummah (Friday) prayers are at 1:30 p.m (March to November) and 12:30 p.m. (November to March). The sermon is in Farsi and Arabic. Eid prayers and other special Islamic and cultural events/holidays are also held at Masjid Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq.

 

Our major educational services are weekend classes for children and adults. These classes teach the Qur’an and Arabic, religious studies, as well as reading and writing lessons in Pashto and Farsi, which are the languages spoken in Afghanistan.


Social services include zakaat and sadaqa (alms and charity) distribution as well as funeral services including on-site washing and shrouding the body prior to the Janazah prayer and burial.

 

Masjid Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq, which is managed by the Afghan Refugee Islamic Community Center, is blessed with the knowledge and guidance of several local leaders including our resident Imam Qari Abdul Basir Durani as well as the services of countless volunteers, the Board of Directors, and the Executive Committee.
