Please remember him in your dua and also, the family that he left behind. Br Moustafa was a great asset to our community and he will be missed! May Allah SWT accept all his good deeds and forgive his shortcomings. Aameen

The Muslim Association of Lehigh Valley (MALV) is a non profit 501c(3) organization, serving religious, educational and social needs of the Muslim community in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton and surrounding areas. It is located in the heart of Lehigh Valley in Whitehall, Pennsylvania. MALV has been in the area for over 25 years and moved to its new location from Emmaus, PA in 1998.
MALV represents a multi-ethnic and vibrant community of Muslims residing in Lehigh Valley. The center is built on 7 acres of land and includes a mosque, library, full time Islamic elementary school and weekend Islamic school. The present facility of 14,000 square feet is insufficient to accommodate the rapid growth of the community. An expansion plan to increase the size of the facility is in progress. Phase I of expansion was completed in 2008 with addition of 80 parking spaces. Construction of phase II of expansion is in progress which includes construction of new elementary school and gymnasium.
MALV offers the five daily prayers, and weekly halaka (religious education for brothers and sisters) year around. MALV also has monthly family dinners with invited guest speakers, an annual fun fair, and various youth programs. MALV maintains strong ties with other religious groups and participates in interfaith activities, community service programs and other social events. It is democratically governed by eight elected members of the Board of Trustees and eight elected members of the Executive Committee.
