MCWS   (Muslim Community of Western Suburbs) is a non-profit organization, located in the western suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. 

The Muslim Community of the Western Suburbs is dedicated to creating and promoting a community of peace and caring where it and its members grow closer to God and through that closeness become positive contributors to their families and the community around them. As such MCWS lauds and welcomes acts of community service, neighborliness, and positive civic participation. Conversely MCWS stands against acts of violence, oppression, abuse and discrimination whether committed by those external to the Muslim community or from within. We pray for a world where peace and harmony prevails and the poor, oppressed, and abused are relieved of their challenges.

In addition to a mosque, with five regular prayers with the Imam Sheikh Ali (religious leader), various other beneficial activities are held at MCWS on a weekly/monthly basis, which are open for everybody, and various volunteers can help you to answer any of your questions.
