Welcome to the official ICEV website

 Assalamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

thank you for visiting the Islamic Center of the East Valley(ICEV) website. We are located at 425 N. Alma School Road, in Chandler, Arizona (between Erie and Galveston on Alma School Road). ICEV began its journey with the purchase of land in 1996.  Alhamdulillah, the Masjid is in full operation since Ramadan 2009.  ICEV now has a full time Imam who leads the daily prayers (please check prayer times on the right).  Imam Ahmed Moharram is an Al-Azhar educated scholar and Hafiz.  Jumah khutbas are offered by the Imam and other scholars in the community.

Many programs are on-going at ICEV at the present time including activities emphasizing a) Memorization of Quran, b) Tajweed lessons, c) Halaqas focusing on various Islamic topics, d) Dawah programs, e) Youth programs, and f) Sunday School. Please check the event calendar for additional details about the program.

Please feel free to browse the website and review the organizations history captured in photos and documents. Also, please feel free to review the ICEV bylaws. If you have any questions, please contact the people that are listed in the contact page.


Hādīth of the Week

Narrated Abu Huraira (RAA) :Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said

"Whoever is made wealthy by Allah and does not pay the Zakat of his wealth, then on the Day of Resurrection his wealth will be made like a baldheaded poisonous male snake with two black spots over the eyes. The snake will encircle his neck and bite his cheeks and say, 'I am your wealth, I am your treasure.' " Then the Prophet (ﷺ) recited the verses:

--{‏{‏لاَ يَحْسِبَنَّ الَّذِينَ يَبْخَلُونَ 

'Let not those who withhold.' (to the end of the verse). (3.180).

[ Sahih al-Bukhari 1403 ]

  • Men will pray downstairs, in the basement, and in the outdoor areas.
  • Women will pray upstairs.
  • Only 10+ boys and girls are allowed to pray with their parents, due to space constraints.

We really appreciate all the community members for being patient with us. Indeed, if we have a pure intention and if we do due diligence to perform prayers at masjid but failed to do so due to a reason beyond our control, in shaa Allah our rewards won’t be reduced.


May Allah SWT guide us, accept all our good deeds, protect our community and our country.



Assalamu Alaikum Dear Valued Community Member, 

We would like to invite you to the Annual ICEV 2021 Ramadan Qur'an Memorization Competition.  The objective of the competition is to instill love of reciting the Qur’an in the hearts of our children. Insha'Allah this will be an inspirational event for children alike. We are very excited for this event and hope parents will encourage and support students who are participating by joining us!

Because of the pandemic it is hard to conduct the program like we used to do in the last years. To accommodate everyone and for the safety of our children and their loved ones this year's competition format will be slightly different.

Please make sure to register your children as soon as possible. Please fill a separate form for each Participant. A single form submitted with multiple names will be rejected.

Registration Deadline April 3rd 2021

Group                   Surah                                      Child's Age

The five finalists from each category will have to compete in person in the Masjid. Limiting the participants will help maintain social distancing.

 Two Jumuah Prayes at ICEV

 Assalam-alaikum ICEV Administration was looking at addressing the needs of the community for the Jumuah  Prayers. 

Increase in community members and having limited space availability  inside the Masjid  became an aggravated issue. Besides this there has been continued requests for 2nd Friday khutbah to accommodate different scheduled needs of people who have limited time off from work, but would like to attend the salah' insha'Allah. 

Insha'Allah there will be two Jumuah Prayers starting this Friday November 28, 2014

From November 28th 2014 :
1st Jumuah Khutbah : 12:30 PM  Iqama time at - 1:00 PM
2nd Jumuah Khutbah : 1:35 PM  Iqama time at - 1:55 PM


  • Small, dirt lot is now open, please take advantage of parking there. Click here to view map.
  • Please DO NOT park on Pleasant Dr. (East of the Masjid)
