Established in 2004, Gading Jame Masjid is one of the the largest multi-purpose built Mosques in Hayward, California. We believe that our primary role is to serve the needs of the local community and to work towards the common good. Our strong partnerships with the American Muslim Association and other faith groups and many others have helped us to contribute towards improvements within the local community. This builds on the very essence of our Mosque: a coming together of distinguished Muslims and non-Muslims to create a cohesive and tolerant society.
Tolerance & Opposing Extremism
Gading Jame Masjid works actively to promote tolerance and understanding. Along with all the local Mosques, we are part of the American Muslim Association, this binds together Muslims from different backgrounds and strands of Islam. We enjoy excellent interfaith relations – such as our recent interfaith events – and several times each year we open the doors of the Mosque and centre, inviting people to visit and view an exhibition about Islam and Muslims
Since the Mosque’s erection, it has become a focal point for the Muslim community. Over the years, Muslims have used the Mosque for events, meetings, lectures, studies and community and educational purposes. Many of the original founders of the Mosque committee still have a connection with the Mosque and as time has passed, many new innovations have been made as to how the Mosque is democratically run using Islamic teachings as the basis for equal representation of all members of the community. Thus, regular meetings, annual selection and equal opportunities have meant that the running of Gading Jame Masjid has been as efficient as possible over the decades.
