Mosque Notes

Founded in the 1950’s in the barber shop of Charlie Boyd, the community of the Houston Masjid of Al-Islam is Houston’s oldest and most historic Muslim Community.  The Houston Masjid of Al-Islam began as Temple #45 in of the Nation of Islam under the leadership of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.  The Houston Masjid of Al-Islam transitioned to the universal message of Al-Islam with the passing of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad following the eminent Muslim American Scholar and pioneer of Islam in the United States the late Honorable Imam W. Deen Mohammed. 

The Houston Masjid of Al-Islam moved from location to location from the mid 1950’s until 1978.  In 1978 the Houston Masjid of Al-Islam purchased a former Christian Scientist Church with funds donated by heavy weight champion Muhammad Ali and converted it into a masjid.  The converted masjid located @ 6641 Bellfort remained the home of the Houston Masjid of Al-Islam until the building was destroyed by hurricane Ike in September of 2008.  The Houston Masjid of Al-Islam has plans to begin construction of a new 5700 square feet mosque that will serve as landmark for the historical legacy of Al-Islam in Houston.
