Mission and Vision

A Vibrant, Diverse and Proactive Community

MALV represent a multi-ethnic and vibrant community of Muslims residing in Lehigh Valley. The center is built on 7 acres of land and includes a mosque, library, full time Islamic elementary school and weekend Islamic school.


The Muslim Association of Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania originated primarily to bring together Muslims of diverse backgrounds and cultures under one unified, organized, proactive community. The MALV stands upon the principles of inclusiveness, responsibility, and action.

The MALV also reaches out to those who are not Muslims, primarily to educate them about the misconceptions regarding Islam and the Islamic way of life, and to include anyone willing to stand up for truth, justice, and peace. Aside from fostering a social community for Muslims, the MALV encourages mental, physical, and spiritual development through an array of athletic programs, spiritual discussions, rallies, academic forums, and charity events.

The ultimate goal of the MALV is to encourage both Muslims and non-Muslims to evolve intellectually, physically, and spiritually throughout their life and to become enlightened, responsible, and just


MALV vision is to be a model American Muslim community with which Allah (God) is pleased. Inspired by our Islamic faith and guided by our values, we envisage a world where communities are empowered, social obligations are fulfilled and people respond as one to the suffering of others.
