The As-Salaam Islamic classes in Maplewood commenced in the fall of 1998 and have been in existence for almost 12 years. The Masjid takes students from 5 years upwards and apart from the seriousness of learning; students also get to partake in many fun field trips such as bowling, ice-skating, roller blading and visits to some of the museums.
The older students of As-Salaam volunteer at different organizations, such as Feed My Starving Children, Breast Cancer and Children's Cancer events. There are plans to commence volunteering at Senior Homes. Students are made aware of world issues and are encouraged to participate in efforts and drives relating to disasters and calamities locally and around the world. The enormous effort put into raising funds and collecting and shipping off basic necessities for the Pakistan Flood Victims is but one recent example. They have also independently organized and hosted Youth Conferences which were very successful.

Our aim is to encourage our students to be exemplary Muslims and strong leaders not only within our own community but also within the community at large while at the same time instilling in them the percepts of the basic tenets of Islam.
