The neighborhood's first mosque on Mount Carmel was built in 1931, and a larger grand mosque in the 1970s. The grand mosque has two white minaretes standing 35 meters tall, which dominate the low-rise skyline of the residential neighborhoods on the ridges nearby. The mosque has been subsidized entirely by the members of the local Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Israel settled in Kababir from Ni'lin near Jerusalem. Abdul Qadir Odeh, was the first Palestinian to embrace Ahmadiyyat in Israel. The first Ahmadiyya Muslim Missionary from India in Israel was Jalaluddin Shams.
