Welcome to Masjid
Masjid As-Salaamah Inc is an Islamic house of worship serving the Muslim community in Columbus and the surrounding communities of Central Ohio. The mission of Masjid As-Salaamah Inc. is to establish a masjid that follows the Qur’an and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), according to the understanding of the Salafu-Saalih (Righteous Predecessors). Masjid-As-Salaamah Inc. was formed and incorporated on February 16, 2010. The building was purchased on July 23, 2010. The Masjid as a functioning house of worship was inaugurated on August 19, 2010, corresponding with the night of Ramadan 10, 1431. We currently serve more than 300 families in Columbus and its suburbs.
Warning to Our Youth!As a matter of religious conviction and belief, Masjid As-Salaamah’s position towards extremist groups such as Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, ISIS (ISIL), and other groups with similar religious ideologies has been very clear: that they are outcasts, deviants, and Takfiris who follow in the beliefs of the Khawaarij (renegades), an ancient sect that was known for murdering Muslims. Furthermore, we believe their violent acts, such as assassinations, kidnappings, hijackings, suicide bombings, violence against governments and civilians are both illegal and contrary to correct Islamic beliefs and teachings. A Takfiri (from the Arabic word تكفيري) is a Muslim who practices Takfir, which is accusing another Muslims of apostasy or disbelief.

رَبَّنَا لاَ تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ | Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the Bestower.
