Zawiya Perspective is a third-place/space designed to facilitate an OPEN, HEALTHY, and sustainable ACTUALIZATION of Islam. With you we build culture and community. We inform the American narrative as we bring meaning back into our lives.


We want to live a life filled with gratitude and meaning. Join us as we create and experience inspired programs that are intellectually, spiritually, and aesthetically stimulating. Who knew shifting consciousness could be so much fun?


We believe that the challenges of faith can be ameliorated through uplifting social engagement in a semi-sacred space where mutual respect is paramount.  Our companionship is intentional. Our connections are real.


This is not a one-sided conversation. Zawiya Perspective empowers you, demanding that you take charge of your life and your community. We provide the space, the environment but you have to bring the soul.

    Lets Go Hiking


    Please read the entire description:

    Hey all it’s that time again!!!
    We’re going to get outside and get into nature!!! Come spend the afternoon with us as we enjoy each other’s company and God’s creation!

    Please bring good shoes to walk in and at least one water bottle!
    This hike is easy with great views of the Santa Ana mountains and there’s even a lake. Bring your families, friends, and kids even!
    If the hike was not enough community we’ll also plan on eating after the hike also!!!!


    The plan is to meet up at a parking lot at Santiago hills park this will allow us to have free parking for the day instead of the 3 dollars to park at the canyon! I’ll post a picture on a map for the parking lot!
