About Masjid Al-Khair
Prior to 1989, the small Muslim community of Youngstown would meet in a tiny house on Harmon Avenue. Eventually, the congregation grew to the point that a single classroom Sunday School was also operating from the basement of this building. The dreams of having their own Masjid seemed far-fetched. However, the community banded together and collected enough funds to erect the current structure, which is readily apparent from I-680, the main highway vein of Youngstown, Ohio.
Over the years, our ever-growing community required a larger structure. The Masjid has expanded to meet the needs of the Muslim community and has become the focal point of local Islamic activity. With a busy Sunday School, weekly Jumaah prayers, vibrant Ramadan activities, and full funeral services, the masjid has continued to evolve beyond its original expectations.
