The Masjid Al Fatima is a Shi’a mosque in Orangevale, California.

Its Muharram program for 2018 was led by Maulana Qaiser Abbas. [1] Abbas is an instructor for the Imam Ali Seminary in Adelanto, California, [2] which is run by Sheikh Mirza Muhammad Ali Baig. In October of 2018, Clarion Project reported on how Baig is a supporter of Iran’s leader, Ali Khamenei, as well as violent jihad. [3]

In addition, Abbas is an associate of Sayed Abbas Ayleya, a Washington-state-based sheikh who supports the ideas of Khamenei and the Islamic Republic of Iran’s founder, Ruhollah Khomeini. A Facebook post from December shows Ayleya and Abbas posing in a picture together. [4]

Also, Abbas’s Facebook information shows that he liked the page of Makarem Shirazi, one of Iran’s leading clerics.
