A Beacon of Unity in South NJ

Muslim American Community Association (MACA) is committed to serve as a center for religious development, social, educational, and cultural enrichment based upon the principles and teachings of The Quran and The Sunnah (the teachings of The Prophet (PBUH) in Islam). We believe in the Oneness of God and emphasizing peace and unity among humanity. 

Our beloved Voorhees Islamic Center, a beacon of unity for the communities of South Jersey including Voorhees, Gibbsboro, Lindenwold, Clementon, Berlin, Evesham Township, Kirkwood, Alluvium, and beyond, stands as a testament to the power of our collective faith and generosity.

Our facility is well-known and highly visible in Voorhees and other nearby cities. Thousands of cars drive by the facility each day. The signage includes recognizable Islamic identity.

Our History

MACA Masjid was established in 2001 through the tireless efforts and sacrifices of our founders and their supporters. The journey was not without challenges, as some local residents initially opposed our establishment. However, through perseverance and a commitment to interfaith understanding, MACA Masjid has become a cherished cornerstone of the Voorhees community. We are particularly grateful for the dedication of the late Zia Rahman, whose leadership was instrumental in our founding.

The Muslim American Community Association has been approved by the IRS as a registered 501(3)(c) charitable organization.
