I had a very nice time there for a first-timer.

My first Jummah in another country.

The Mosque was smaller than I’d thought it would be, but came in plenty of time to get a nice place to sit and read.

It was only a few blocks from where my hotel was, so I walked my way there on a summery day.

The Imam was African and made sure to let us know of that even in the Khutbah, which was in Arabic and English - reflecting the diversity of the people in the mosque which was great.

I always go to this mosque for jummah and taraweh prayers. I recently moved to Michigan but whenever I go to NYC I definitely go visit this mosque. The women section is very nice and spacious. Truly amazing!

Beautiful mosque and lovely sermon

The architecture of this mosque is breathtaking, definitely an attraction in itself. The mosque is also very spacious and clean. I was very impressed with the eloquent, yet understandable sermon. Will definitely be visiting again next time I am in the city.

Absolutely beautiful

The building is absolutely beautiful and its orientation shows that the NYC grid is not exactly north/south.

People were very welcoming and answered a number of my questions, including those about the abortive neighborhood center located near Ground Zero that caused so much angst a few months ago.

I learned a great deal from my visit and found a sense of peace and understanding.

The Islamic Cultural Center was the first building erected as a mosque in New York City. It contains the two primary elements that traditionally compose an Islamic house of worship: a mosque and a minaret. Within the mosque, the mihrab, or alter niche, faces Mecca, dictating the mosque’s 29 degree angle from the Manhattan street grid. This alignment creates a traditional exterior court for worshipers to gather before services. The geometric form of the mosque, based on a recurring theme of square units, follows Islamic law, which prohibits the depiction of natural forms since they are made in the image of God. The result is a striking blend of ancient Islamic tradition and contemporary design and materials.

America meets Islam, Beautifully

I've been to a number of mosques around the country, and I must say this is one who's beauty is simply striking. It is conveniently located on the Upper East-Side and was only a few blocks away from the subway station. I went with two friends for friday prayers in early July and it was a very pleasant experience to pray in this house of worship. The congregation was represented by people of all ethnicities around the world and came together beautifully. It felt like a very open and welcoming mosque, where men and women were given an equally good space to worship. The imam lead an enlightening sermon and afterwords I was able to roam the courtyard and gaze at the architectural beauty. It was a great experience, and God willing I will be able to attend prayers here again.

The mosque is open to people of all faiths who are curious about Islam, and I personally invite any non-Muslim to come in and attend a prayer or talk to the imam (priest) and see what Islam is all about!
