Ad-Dawah Center is a non-profit organization established in 2012 to serve the needs of the ethnically diverse Muslim American community in the Mansfield, Florence, Roebling, Bordentown, Springfield, Chesterfield and surrounding areas. Ad-Dawah Center of NJ, was formed with the merger of Ad-Dawah and Salaam Organization of Mansfield.
In Mid 2017 we acquired a property of about 1.7 Acres, which included a 200 + years old, sparsely used building, and a cemetery, which is now considered our Center. The Center is located at 3191 Route 206 in Columbus, NJ with easy access to major roads (NJTP and Interstate 295) We have since very quickly renovated the ground floor and started operating the Center for daily worship.
We currently have daily Congregation Prayers (Fajr, Magreb & Esha) and Jumma Prayers. In addition, we have Tarawee prayers during Ramadan along with weekly Halaqa activities (Thursday after Magreb and on Sundays after Magreb). We are blessed to have an Imam (Part Time) right from the start, who has been involved in actively engaging the community.
An Executive Committee manages the operations of the Center with the support of the community. Currently we are working towards improving the Center. We have completed the interior renovation of the main building, with the addition of a new floor. We are planning to renovate the other section (bathrooms and offices) and are actively involved with the Township to acquire approvals. Next we plan to construct an underground rain water system and also add a Parking Lot as required by our approved Site Plan.
We welcome involvement from the community members to provide their expertise and leadership as we continue to grow services and benefits to the local community.
