Masjid Al Tawheed is the only Mosque between Northern California and Central Oregon. We have members of the Muslim community from the USA, Middle East, Far East, Asia, Africa, Kenya, and Fiji to name a few. We are a growing Muslim community of families who are Immigrants, reverts to Islam, and students from the local University. Its the ONLY mosque between Eugene (Oregon) and Redding (CA) around 300 miles. In the past couple of years, we have had several families and individuals revert to Islam. There is a great potential for Islam to grow in our community.
Our mission is to: Live our faith as a congregation, inspired by the teachings of the Quran and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as individuals and as a collective body, and to foster a mission of peace, justice, and compassion for all within our Mosque, our community, and the world.
Masjid Board of Directors
We have the best people from our community to run the Masjid and all the programs. Following is a brief introduction to the Masjid board of Directors.
Sister Mary Foster serves as Secretary and Treasurer on the Masjid Al Tawheed Board of Directors. She converted to Islam in 1991, after meeting many wonderful Muslims and studying the religion for some time. She is a retired special education teacher, having taught in various schools in the Rogue Valley for 30 years.
Mary enjoys garden design and has created several community gardens in the area. She and her teenaged students built the Blue Heron Community Garden in 2004, located in the City of Phoenix–just north of the masjid. This type of garden gives low-income people the opportunity to improve food security for their families. Mary is the chairperson of the Community Gardening Network, a part of the Jackson County Master Gardener Program.
She and her husband spend much of their free time travelling. In 1996 they did around the world trip called Abdi and Mary’s Hakuna Matata Adventure and had a page on the internet which chronicled their journeys. It can still be accessed at http://www.globalschoolnet.org/gsh/past/hakuna/
