MCC, was one of the first mosques I ever attended after my conversion. After I obtained my driver’s license, I used to think nothing of driving more than 20-25 minutes each way to attend the fajr prayer in congregation.

Women used to be kicked out the mosque completely in Ramadan and relegated to another building but they fought back and have won these concessions. Not perfect but progress. MCC has a health clinic on-site where Muslim healthcare professionals donate their time to treat those in need.
