Mahmood Mosque (Arabic: مسجد محمود‎) is a mosque in Kababir, Haifa, built by the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in the late 1970s.

History[edit]

The first mosque on Mount Carmel was built in 1931. Mahmood mosque was built in the 1970s. It is named for the second khalifa of the promised messiah Bashiruddin Mahmood Ahmad, son of the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, also known as the "Promised Reformer."

The mosque has two white minarets standing 35 meters tall, which dominate the skyline of the residential neighborhoods on the ridges nearby. Construction of the mosque was funded by members of the local Ahmadiyya community, which moved to Kababir from Ni'lin, a village near Jerusalem.

Kababir is a mixed neighborhood of Ahmadi Muslim Arabs and Jews on Mount Carmel.[1] In 1928, most of the residents belonged to the Ahmadiyya community[citation needed].
