Abu Bakr Siddiq Mosque in Hayward - United States
Masjid Abubaker Siddiq's history dates to 1985, when a group of Afghan immigrants organized prayer services in a leased storefront on Mission Boulevard. In 1988, a 3/4 acre empty lot was purchased at 29414 Mission Boulevard as the intended location for Hayward's first purpose-built mosque, with an additional 2.75 acres purchased at the same site in 1992.
,br>In November 1995, plans were submitted for a 10,000 square foot Islamic center, and ground was broken in June 1996. An occupancy permit was officially issued in February 2001, and a grand opening ceremony was held in June. The two-story mosque is stucco-faced, with bays of windows set in bands of Islamic tiles. A small dome sits above the entrance portico. The building has two prayer halls, two washrooms, office space, second-floor classroom space, a kitchen, and multipurpose meeting area. More than 300 worshipers can be accommodated in the prayer;
