Selimiye Mosque in Methuen, MA was established in April of 1995 with
the contributions of local Muslim community members in the New England
area. It was then that some Muslim families of Turkish origin realized
that a mosque was needed in the Merrimack Valley.
They pulled their
humble resources together to buy a rundown church in Methuen, MA With
their volunteer work and $200,000 in donations from the Muslim
community. The grounds and the building were cleaned, interiors were
renovated and the necessary facilities were added to turn the rundown
church into a functioning mosque. By the Grace of Allah and the support
of the Muslim community.
Since then, Selimiye Mosque has been fully
functional and serving the diverse Muslim community of Merrimack Valley.
It offers many services to the community including, five daily prayers,
children are attending daily classes for Quran Reading, memorization
and Islamic Studies. During Ramadan, there are iftars (dinners) and
Taraweeh prayers are held every night. Besides the daily prayers and the
Friday prayer, there are conferences and other meetings. The Mosque has
become not only a religious but also a cultural and a social activity
center for the Muslim community.
