Our History

Masjid Ar-Razzaq was founded in Charlotte on October 13, 2006 as a religious order that supports the teachings of Imam W.D. Mohammed.


On February 25, 1975 Elijah Mohammed, the founder of the Nation of Islam died. Elijah Mohammed's son, Imam Wallace D. Mohammed was selected by several nationally known leaders of the Nation of Islam to lead the adherents throughout all of North America. As a boy and young man, Imam W. D. Mohammed studied the Qur`an and Arabic. As Imam W. D. Mohammed learned more about Islam, there were many beliefs that the Nation of Islam exposed that were troubling to him. Imam W. D. Mohammed was troubled by the philosophy propagated by the Nation of Islam that white people were "blue-eyed devils" who must be avoided at all costs. This belief runs contrary to the Islamic philosophy that all humans are equal before God. Imam W. D. Mohammed gradually corrected other ideas and did away with other troubling practices. Imam W. D. Mohammed instituted the five daily prayers (salat), the Jumu`ah prayer service, and fasting during the month of Ramadan. Closer observance of the writings in the Qur`an were also instituted.

 

 We have a small in-home Masjid convenient to downtown Charlotte and the Airport Area.  Over the years, we have learned that what people need most is someone who will listen to their concerns - someone they can turn to for support when the going gets tough and that's what Masjid Ar-Razzaq is all about.
