The Muslim Community Center – East Bay strives to provide a welcoming space for everyone in our congregation to grow and to feel community.

MCC proudly hosts a Uyghur-language Mommy & Me group to create love for Islam for children age 2 to 6 for Bay Area Uyghur residents.

These Uighur-language sessions mirror MCC’s long-running Happy Hearts Toddlers sessions in English that create love for our faith through play, game, song, and crafts.

Two dedicated mothers in the congregation – Sisters Buzura Aiziz & Nurbiye Ilghar – lead the Uighur group, which is free to attend. The Uighurs are a persecuted Turkic-speaking Uighur Muslim minority in Western China.

The Uyghur language play sessions meet at MCC from 10 a.m. to noon every Saturday. A mother or a female relative is required to accompany each child.

To inquire about MCC’s Uyghur Mommy & Me, please email Sister Nurbiye Ilghar at uyghur@mcceastbay.org.
