"And We have made the night and the day two signs, then We have made the sign of the night to pass away and we have made the sign of the day to manifest, so that you may seek grace from your Lord " Holy Quran 17:12

​A group of volunteers from the Pittsburgh Muslim community are working to establish a social center for our Muslim aging population. Their work started a few months ago. All meetings are open to the public and all are welcome.

Please fill out our assessment survey (and distribute it among your friends and family). The purpose of the survey is to assess the extent of the need for such facilities and collect individual preferences on types of needed services and location

This is very important for early planning purposes.
