Imam-a-Zamana Foundation was founded in 1988 originally as Imam Sahib uz-Zaman Trust. Initially the foundation began its activities by conducting annual seminars on “Contemporary Issues in Islam” from 1988 to 2000. The first 11 years the seminar was held on the premises of the Islamic Education Center in Potomac, MD, then was held at al-Khoei Islamic Center, NY, and the Islamic Institute of Knowledge in Michigan respectively. The seminars provided a forum for the exchange of ideas and a platform for the discussion of social, financial and moral issues concerning Muslims living in the United States.


Since 1988, the foundation has published several books including “Selected Supplications: Prayers and Salutations”, “Sahifa as-Sajjadiya” with English Translation, and “Essence of the Holy Quran” by Agha M. Pooya.

Center Activities

Bait Wali-e-Asr (House of Imam-az-Zaman a.s.)

On 15th Shabaan 1409 A.H., March 1989, Imam-a-Zamana Foundation purchased a building and 15.8 acre property in Freehold, N.J., located in central New Jersey. The purpose of the building was to conduct regular religious services and programs for Jum’a, Weekend school, Summer camps, Ramadhan, and Muharram. In 1990, the foundation began its weekend Islamic school, Imam-a-Zamana Madrasah. The Madrasah continues to hold its weekly school from 10:30-2 p.m. on Sundays from September through June. Jum’ah prayers continue to be held every Friday at 1 p.m. during Daylight Savings Time and at 12 p.m. from October-April.

The foundation began its services at the center in 1990 for the holy months of Ramadan and Muharram/Safar. During the month of Ramadan, there is a daily iftaar followed by a lecture presented by a visiting Aalim. During the months of Muharram and Safar the shahadat of Imam Husain and his companions are commemorated during the first 12 days of Muharram, and on the weekends through Rabi al Awal. We have been blessed in the past to have our religious services conducted by pious ulema such as Allama Zeeshan Haider Jawadi (marhoom), Maulana Adeeb al-Hindi (marhoom), Maulana Syed Muhammad Askari, Maulana Kalbe Sadiq Saheb, Professor Abul Qasim Saheb, and many others.
