Title : Mosque in America : a national potrait, The

Description :
This website presents a downloadable copy of a report from the Mosque Study Project which was jointly sponsored by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America, the Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, and the Islamic Circle of North America. The work, which was published on the 26th of April 2001, has two aims: to give a comprehensive potrait of mosques in the US, and to present a public profile of mosques in the hope that this would enhance understanding of the Muslim presence there. The report was divided into the following headings: 'The Mosque: Basic Characteristics'; 'Worship'; 'Participants'; 'Mosque History, Location and Building'; 'The Mosque: Its Mission, Practices and Teachings'; 'Mosque Programs and Involvement In The Community'; 'Leadership and Organizational Dynamics'; and 'Finances'. An interesting resource for students of Islam and those undertaking comparative work.
