JOIN THE VISION 2020 SIDE BANNER
Viva Islam, commenced its da’wah and charity events in Mexico back in 2010, assisting and organising events in the North and South of Mexico.
The vision to construct the first purpose built Masjid & Community Centre in the state of Baja California, Mexico, commenced in 2012.
A few sisters were the first to commence da’wah activities in Rosarito, Baja California back in 2009. The town had only a handful of Muslims where da’wah & charity activities had commenced from a premises on the land where the newly constructed Masjid and Centre stands today.
Viva Islam supported the da’wah initiative and opened the first Musallah in Rosarito and later commenced to build the first and only Masjid in Rosarito and in the state of Baja Mexico. Al Wahid Masjid & Centre, (AWCC), was completed in 2016 and now serves the wider community and is a ‘Hub’ for outreach projects in Mexico.
The centre facilitates the growing Muslim Community for:
