In a period of fourteen centuries of Islam, 35 years is a mere speck. An organization that was founded to meet the needs of a nascent Muslim community in Silicon Valley in 1979 has nurtured successive generations and spawned sister organizations. With a mission to serve our deen with the color of an American identity, SBIA has thrived with the blessings of Allah SWT and the participation of the community.
During these last 35 years, SBIA has grown from modest beginnings in a small home to a 70,000-square foot community center. We have seen some of our founders return to meet their Maker, enjoyed the continued participation of long-time supporters (many now with grandchildren!), and welcomed many new community members from across the world.
The journey from a small mosque to a beacon that invites the community-at-large has been filled with lessons, gratitude, humility, camaraderie, and challenges. In this center, we can truly see the three aspects of the hadith of the Sadaqah-Jariyah come to life: An enduring charity, beneficial knowledge, and righteous children raised by a community.
To give thanks to our Lord, and to appreciate those that have made this journey a remarkable one, SBIA will host a very special event on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at the Santa Clara Marriott.
Invited guests include statewide and local civic officials, dignitaries, scholars, world-renowned nasheed artists and many others. A commemorative journal is planned for this occasion.
Mark your calendars -- March 28, 2015 -- this event will sell out, so ensure that you're a part of it!

Rooted in Faith
A Weekly Discussion Series | Every Thursday at 7:30pm
Too often are we distracted by topics in life that do not concern God. Such seemingly meaningless distractions can, overtime, become destructive to one’s spiritual health. This weekly discussion series aims to orient one’s internal compass towards God. Covering a variety of topics (including current events, day to day fiqh questions, hadith, etc), Imam Tahir Anwar will discuss the primary goal of a Muslim: How to become rooted in faith in order to become closer to God.
Quranic Tafsir (Sisters Only)
A Weekly Tafsir of Selected Surahs | Every Thursday at 11am
