The RGS Masjid is a breathtaking prayer room open to students, faculty, staff and the general public, where daily prayers are held, including Jum’ah and Tarawih prayers. Visitors are mesmerized by its three qubbas (domes) and mihrab (niche). Each dome is hand-painted with Islamic calligraphy, the entrance doors are carved with geometric shapes and the walls are adorned with gilded panels and blue ceramic tiles typically found in mosques around the world.

Our masjid is a place for both spiritual nourishment and intellectual growth. Besides serving as a sacred space for contemplation, supplication, and prayer, it also serves as a congregational place where renowned scholars give khutba and lead traditional khalaqas for learning.

Friday Prayers

Regular Friday prayers are performed at RGS Masjid every Friday at 1 PM. The Khutbah is given in English normally by our faculty member, Halim Calis.

We sometimes call scholars and imams from the Muslim community to give Khutbahs and Halaqahs. Special Khutbas that we announce on this page may have different starting times.
