The Mid Hudson Islamic Association was founded in the early 1960s by a dedicated group of young families who started off meeting within one another’s homes to hold weekly prayer services and Islamic classes. Through the grace of Allah Almighty and the hard work of those families, MHIA was able to build the beautiful Masjid Al Noor in Wappingers Falls, NY in 1990. Over the last 30 years, this Masjid has become home to the Al Noor Islamic School that has provided Islamic education for hundreds of Muslim children. Today, part of MHIA’s primary mission is to provide a space for the local Muslim community to gather and learn about the sacred faith of Islam.
In addition to providing spiritual, emotional, personal, and community support to Muslims of all backgrounds, MHIA also strives to increase interfaith collaboration and community engagement in the greater Dutchess County area through charitable drives and collaborative events throughout the year. MHIA provides a newsletter to keep you up to date with events and news within the community, and aware of the prayer times offered at our Masjid. Please use our website to get to know or contact us, learn about upcoming events, find halal or Muslim owned businesses in the local area, or make a donation towards us.

MHIA 2020 SPONSORSHIP
We are now accepting MHIA Sponsorship applications for the current year. The deadline for both form and payment has been extended to April 30.
In an effort to protect our own congregation as well as others and in compliance with the mandates that are expected to be declared by the authorities, Masjid Al Noor will no longer be holding any prayer services as of Monday, March 23, 2020, and all Masjid events have been cancelled. We will monitor the situation closely and re-open as soon as it is safe to conduct congregational prayers. Please check into the MHIA Community Page on Facebook for regular updates. We will, of course, also send out email notifications as needed.
Community members are encouraged to watch out for themselves as well for others by staying away from the mosque if they or anyone in their home is feeling ill. Please contact your medical provider immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath.
It is important to follow the advice of our local and national health officials. It is important to note that as of now health officials are not recommending closure of faith based organizations. Based on guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for faith based organization, here are some basic, common sense steps we can take to protect ourselves and our more vulnerable community members.
While we will, inshallah, take all necessary steps to stay healthy, we recognize that health is ultimately one of the biggest blessings bestowed upon us by The Almighty and we pray that He grants everyone in our community and beyond good health.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will provide support and fund our mission.
