Our community primarily known as Masjid-ul-Mumineen has been in existence as the Nigerian Muslim Association of Greater Houston (NMAGH) for over a quarter of a century. Its origin stemmed from some Nigerians that came to the United States for their college and graduate school programs and decided to stay back in Houston to build careers, develop businesses and raise families after successfully completing their studies. The need for networking, socialization, cultural development and religious fellowship inevitably led to the establishment of the NMAGH. Our community has systematically moved from a social/cultural focus to a full Islamic community.
The second generation of Nigerian-Americans has come of age. In ensuring that we duly attend to the needs of all age groups in the community, we have developed programs customized for different groups. Consequently, our masjid is now being utilized as a multipurpose community center; Arabic and Islamic school for kids and adults; professional networking center for the working class; rejuvenating center for grandparents and a meeting center for all groups and associations.
