Ramadan Iftars and Taraweeh Prayers

– During the month of Ramadan, our masjid holds daily Taraweeh prayers after the Isha prayer.  The entire Qur’an is recited by our resident Imam who is Hafiz of the Holy Qur’an.  In addition, community Iftars (dinners) are held every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday either as a potluck or catered dinner via sponsorship.

Summer Annual Picnic

– During the summer, we take advantage of the warm weather by having a barbecue and picnic for friends, families, neighbors, clergy, and local politicians.  Tent canopies are pitched, volleyball nets are set up, and wide variety of foods and drinks are enjoyed.  It is a fun, relaxed atmosphere to meet one another and showcase our latest efforts and endeavors to the Springfield community.

MVIA and its members are constantly looking for opportunities to participate in charities and interfaith meetings.  Updates on our latest efforts will be posted as they become available.
