1. PRAYER SERVICES 5 TIMES A DAY
One of the core services the Mosque Foundation offers is Prayer Services. The Mosque Foundation is a full time Mosque that conducts 5 daily prayer services 7 days a week all year long. Additionally, the Mosque Foundation holds 2 Friday prayers due to space and parking lots limitations. The timing for each prayer is posted on the right side of the home page (main page).
Five separate times a day (dawn, noon, late afternoon, dusk, and evening), our Mosque is available for worshippers to come and perform the sacred and beautiful act of worship in congregation.

2. MARRIAGE SERVICES
We offer pre-marriage advice to couples about to join each other in the holy bond and commitment of matrimony. We perform the formal marriage service, in conjunction with State requirements and documentation.
Trials visit each of us throughout our lives. During these moments, we need advice and counsel to help us through these trials. The Imams and other personnel of the Mosque Foundation have many years of experience offering marriage, youth, family, and grief counseling.
4. “ASK THE IMAM”
Often times we are confronted with a situation in which the right choice is not clear or we simply are not aware of the best ethical decision to make. The Mosque Foundation offers people opportunities to ask our Imams about these situations and how Islam’s sacred law addresses them.
Whenever disagreements arise (whether they involve business matters or other aspects of life), it is useful to seek an impartial arbiter to help solve the problem. The Mosque Foundation offers objective arbitration to solve disputes and preserve relations between the disputants.
6. FUNERAL SERVICES
When the inevitability of death comes to our loved ones, the details and pressures of funerals can be taxing. The Mosque Foundation offers grieving families funeral services, including washing of the body, proper wrapping with cloth, funeral sermons, and prayer services.
7. FOOD PANTRY
Thousands of needy families each year receive food from our Food Pantry. Among the most praised kinds of charity is the feeding of the poor. Whenever we relieve the stress of the needy, our wealth never decreases and our rank in the eyes of God increases.
8. WEEKEND SCHOOL
The Mosque Foundation for the last 25 years has provided weekend education for our youth to learn timeless wisdom and gain valuable knowledge that will help achieve a firm understanding of their faith and the ethics and morals it provides them. Over the years, tens of thousands of young boys and girls have learned at the Mosque Foundation al-Siddiq weekend school. (Call for the Mosque Foundation for details.)
