Welcome to the
Manawatu Muslims Association
The Islamic Center
Manawatu Muslim Association (MMA) was established in 1967 when only two Muslim families resided in the Manawatu-Wanganui area. In 1985, when the Islamic Centre at Palmerston North was established at 227 College Street, the number of members in and around Palmerston North was 25. This number rose to around 300 in 1994 and it was during this time it was decided to purchase a new Islamic Centre. This small community got together despite all odds (as the economic conditions in those years was very tough) raised funds to purchase this current premises. MMA currently owns this Masjid which is located at 81 Cook Street.
The Current premises was acquired in 1995 by the then members of the community (May Allah swt accept their sacrifice). Our Masjid has brought together Muslims from all over New Zealand and the Manawatu Region, visitors and students from all around the world at one time or another.
Our Masjid offers many activities for all age groups.
In 1994, the total Muslim population was well below 300 in comparison to over 1,300 today. We have Muslims from many different parts of the world residing in Palmerston North today. Some of these being from the following: - Arab, Asian Subcontinent (including Pakistan, Bangladesh and India), Myanmar, Africa, Afghanistan, Malaysia, Singapore, Mongolia, Fiji, and many others
Messenger of Allah (saw) said: "Whoever builds a masjid (mosque) for the sake of Allah, like a sparrow's nest or even smaller, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise."
