Our History: Major Community Milestones

  • In 2003, about a dozen Tri-Valley Muslims organized a Friday Jumu’ah service in the basement of one person’s home. From there, the community grows and leases a progressively larger space for worship services and Sunday School.
  • In 2006, community leaders drafted a charter for a new regional community center focused on the youth. The MCC East Bay is born.
  • In 2010, a former self-defense training institute in a Pleasanton business park went up for sale. The building’s owner accepts a $4 million offer for the 41,000-square-foot building – about half its appraised value from just a few years prior.
  • In the fall of 2010, a dream was realized when the community moved into its permanent digs: a five-acre site that – after significant phases of improvements – houses a large prayer hall, conference hall, banquet hall, and 21 classrooms.
  • Since 2013, a tenant has been leasing 10,000 square feet from MCC, and hundreds of members have been paying monthly dues that provide a steady stream of operating income to fulfill the founding mandate of a bustling faith-based community space, professionally managed and dedicated to family and youth.
  • In 2017, all interest-free community loans (Karz-e-Hasana) were returned to community member lenders. The building is also paid for by selling a three-acre parcel of Dublin that the community had owned in hopes of building a purpose-built mosque one day.
