Mega Mosque

The 15,000-square-foot mosque, taking shape near a Sons of Norway Viking Hall, will eventually include a Sunday school and a community center. Heated floors will make worship in the bitter winters more comfortable.

The mosque is perhaps the clearest sign yet that Islam in the U.S. is rapidly pushing beyond traditional population centers such as Detroit and Los Angeles. As the number of American Muslims grows through both immigration and higher-than-average birthrates, domes and minarets are sprouting in areas as varied as the eastern mountains of Kentucky and Louisiana’s parishes.

Masjid Jamaah Pusat Ahlus-Sunnah Norwegia

The congregation was founded in 1976 after a group of Sufi-oriented first-generation Pakistani immigrants split from the Islamic Cultural Centre. The mosque has later seen many splits and internal conflicts.

In 1984 a faction split to form a World Islamic Mission congregation, and in 1989 the founder Ahmad Mustaq Chisti was expelled, which resulted in street fights outside the mosque. Internal family-based power struggles about the leadership in the congregation led to violent fights in the mosque in 2006.
