MALV represents 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 present facility of 14,000 square feet is insufficient to accommodate the rapid growth of the community. An expansion plan to increase the size of the facility is in progress. Phase I of expansion was completed in 2008 with addition of 80 parking spaces. Construction of phase II of expansion is in progress which includes construction of new elementary school and gymnasium.

MALV offers the five daily prayers, and weekly halaka (religious education for brothers and sisters) year around. MALV also has monthly family dinners with invited guest speakers, an annual fun fair, and various youth programs. MALV maintains strong ties with other religious groups and participates in interfaith activities, community service programs and other social events. It is democratically governed by eight elected members of the Board of Trustees and eight elected members of the Executive Committee.
