Collectively, we are known as Tazakkat.''Tazakkat'' is an Arabic word that was originally used for the very first believers before they called themselves Muslims. It means to become pure, righteous, honest, and in another sense to grow, increase, flourish and thrive. Our mission is to discover, and help others discover the beauty, purity and simplicity of Islam by:
- Compassionately encouraging each new Muslim in practice
- Facilitating the unique evolution of each new Muslim’s faith
- Actively engaging each new Muslim in learning
This group will be facilitated by coordinators, ideally one male and female.
For the moment, Tazzakkat seeks to engage converts within the larger mosque community and to connect them to each other. Each convert is kept in contact with and notified of upcoming events. We have a class focused for those newer to Islam on Sundays at 10:30-11:30. We also have a Facebook page specially for those in Las Cruces, at
During each Eid, there is a special gathering for those who may not have other family or friends to celebrate with. Obviously, a large majority are converts, however anyone is welcome and we encourage converts to attend other gatherings as well and attempt not to overlap times. Please make sure the coordinators have a current phone number and address to ensure you are kept abreast of things.
