About Us

Husainiya Center of Tucson (HCT) is a tax-exempt non-profit religious organization.

The HCT is an Islamic Shia’a center based on the teachings of our beloved Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and his Progeny, 12 Imams (AS). The purpose for which this HCT is established is based on the belief that Islam is a true way of life. Based on this principle, our mission is to practice Islam as a way of life, to promote Islamic ideas, teaching, and cultures in Arizona, and throughout the United States.

The HCT's devoted volunteer teachers educate the community on the true Islamic thoughts and cultures. We work to clarify the baseless Islamic ideas that are falsehoods, and unfortunately, spreading among communities everywhere. The HCT is active in community outreach by supporting refugees and newcomers in finding jobs, becoming established, and transitioning into the community.

In addition to the establishment of the Islamic studies, the HCT’s goal is to promote friendly relations and build understanding between the Muslim community and other religious groups.

HCT was operating in various houses on a temporary basis for many years. Finally by the Grace of Almighty Allah (SWT), our new center was established and officially opened on April 21, 2019, 15th of Sha’aban, the Anniversary of the birth of our beloved 12th Imam, Imam Mahdi A’ajalallah Ta’ala Farajah (May Allah fasten his coming).

Service Leader: Dr. Pessarakli

Grand Opening

Message from the Mayor of Tucson, Jonathan Rothschild

"I do want to congratulate the organizers of Husainiya Tucson on the Opening of your new Center. The work that has been done the last several years by this community is nothing short of miraculous in bringing a Center to Tucson. For refugees from the Mid-East to have a place where they can learn, find jobs, and make friends who can be mentors as well as those who are going through the same challenges that they are in a new Country is a real contribution to our whole community. I do hope I can visit soon. Enjoy the day and take pride in your accomplishments."
