Service is among the highest callings of a human being. As such, the core mission of the Islamic center is to provide valuable services to its large community. These services are meant to foster a strong sense of family and community and provide spiritual solace and sacred space in a fast-paced and sometimes overwhelming world. We feel honored to be of service to our community.
The Islamic Center holds regular lectures and special events in which our community may expand their knowledge. The programs include Quran commentary and wisdom, details of sacred law, lessons from the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him), history of Muslim civilization, the proper performance of rites of worship (like prayer and Hajj), civic issues and duties, and much more.
