About West Valley Islamic Center

Nestled between Avondale suburbs and the Gateway Pavilions shopping center sits the West Valley's only mosque and Islamic community center.

The idea for the West Valley Islamic Center, which was established two years ago, grew out of the need for a place of worship for the several thousand Muslims in the area, Board Chairman Junaid Qureshi explained.

"What we used to do, when there'd be any religious function we would have to drive 30 miles to Glendale or Peoria. It got to the point when we'd get home at midnight, so we started tossing around the idea that we should have our own center locally because it was not practical otherwise," Qureshi said.

Over time, the center has grown to a congregation of approximately 100 Muslims and their families.
