Join our diverse community as we strive to follow the teachings of Allah's final Messenger PBUH, with informative classes and a strong spirit of brotherhood.
The Lighthouse Mosque was founded in 2007 by Imam Zaid Shakir. The community of the Lighthouse is diverse and tries to adhere to the teaching of Allah’s final Messenger PBUH. Currently the Lighthouse is run by a Majlis Shura consisting of 5 brothers and 3 sisters. It is located in North Oakland and has a rotating group of teachers and speakers that teach classes and delivered khutbah. May Allah continue to bless the Lighthouse community with informative classes, lectures and a healthy spirit of teamwork and brotherhood. May Allah bless all the Muslims with good in this world and good in the next and may He save us from the fire.
