If you have time brother and sister, just visit it. And you'll find very friendly brothers there. I met some brothers like brother Yusuf, Brother Abdul Malik (日本人), brother Norman and Brother Rouf (Pakistan). Please send my greeting when you meet them.

The rest of this article talk about the history of this Masjid.

3rd Floor of Hira Masjid
In 1997, ICOJ (Islamic Circle of Japan) established Hira Masjid in Gyotaku, Ichikawa city of Chiba ken by purchasing a two story building which was a bar earlier. During 2003-2004 the Masjid building was reconstructed looking at the need to increase the capacity as well as poor condition of the building due to the age of building. Alhamdulillah the New Hira Masjid has been built as a Masjid building in Muslim countries, with a capacity of over 200 persons. Major activities of the Hira Masjid are : 

  • Five times Salat , salat-ul-Jumma ,Salat tu Taraweeh 
  • Dars of Quran on every satur day in English & Urdu 
  • Monthly Dars of Hadeeth in Japanese language
