Sunni Salafi Masjid in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Germantown Masjid

Focused on Education and Cultivation (Tasfiyyah Wa Tarbiyyah)

Germantown Masjid is a community that adheres to the Quran and the authentic Sunnah with the understanding of the Salaf [the first three generations of Muslims]. We are dedicated to equipping the community with sound Islamic knowledge and assisting them to implement this in their daily lives.

We hope to establish a community that has a positive influence in the city of Philadelphia and beyond, religiously, socially and economically, without compromising the fundamental tenets of Islām.

Our example for this is the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and his Companions, as they were a nation, united in their worship of Allāh alone and their abandonment of all forms and manifestations of Shirk [polytheism], who drastically changed their society within twenty-three years, replacing oppression and ignorance with justice and knowledge.
