Masjid Bilal is a mosque located in south Los Angeles. Â Masjid Bilal was initially a Nation of Islam (NOI) mosque, known as Muhammadâ€™s Temple of Islam #27. In 1975, the mosque transitioned from NOI to mainstream Sunni Islam, but its imam still participates in NOI events.
The mosque built a new facility in 2007. The mosque was able to complete the project in part through the assistant of grants from the Islamic Development Bank of Saudi Arabia.Â The Islamic Development Bank of Saudi Arabia has been directly involved in paying the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.
The Bilal Centers Resident Imam is Abdul Karim Hasan, who has been the leader there since 1971. Â While Imam Hasan is no longer a member of NOI, he still associates with NOI and its leader, Louis Farrakhan. In 2010, Imam Hasan participated as the keynote speaker at NOIâ€™s annual Savior’s Day commemoration.
The Bilal Center is a board member of the Muslim American Homeland Security Congress (MAHSC), alongside multiple Muslim Brotherhood affiliated organizations.
