About WVMA

West Valley Muslim Association

WVMA is a faith-based organization, home to a community where everyone feels supported, encouraged, and loved.  Our community is not just an event, but a place to belong.  Join us as we strive together to worship God, follow the teachings of the Quran, and the way of our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him).


Nestled among the lush hills of Los Gatos, Los Gatos Islamic Center (LGIC) is the place we call home.  Alongside the daily prayers and Friday Services (jumma prayers) LGIC hosts a variety of programs and our doors are always open.  Come by and enjoy the community garden and explore the grounds filled with greenery.  Our indoor facilities include a prayer hall, auditorium, and a space for recreational activities such as table tennis and pool.  Visit LGIC at 16769 Farley Rd., Los Gatos, CA 95032
