Bait Amer Society
Shia Association of North America was established in the 1970s as one of the first Ithna Ashari Shia Islamic centers in the United States. Beginning with a handful of families, the facilities of the center, Bait ul Qayem, and the services offered to the community have burgeoned and flourished into a society that encompasses a broad membership of Momineen from the Tri-State area.
Bait-ul-Qayem has served the Shias in the Delaware Valley for over 25 years as a place to conduct religious, educational, charitable and cultural activities according to the Ithna-asheri Shia faith under fiqh-e-Jafaria (Jafari jurisprudence). Our mission is to promote religious learning and foster a sense of brotherhood and social consciousness. We welcome Shias and others to learn about the Shia faith.
