“And hold fast, all of you
to the Rope of Allah
is Islam) and be not
al-’Imran, Ayah 103)
In 1969, a group of Muslim students who chose to make their
permanent home in Minnesota formally started the Islamic Center of Minnesota
in Dinkytown. The AbuKhadra
family generously donated the facility in Columbia Heights to be used as a Masjid. With the growth of the Muslim community and with
generous donations from community members, the ICM purchased the school
building on Gardena Ave. in Fridley in 1987. The ICM school facility in
Fridley and the ICM AbuKhadra Masjid
are the two ICM facilities in use today.
The Fridley building is used on weekdays by the Al-Amal School which operates a full time Islamic school.
The ICM operates a weekend school on Saturday and Sunday. ICM AbuKhadra Masjid holds daily
and Friday congregational prayers. The Muslim community in Minnesota is
estimated at 150,000. There are some 6 to 8 million Muslims in the United
States and 1.4 billion Muslims worldwide.
Please help ICM with your donations.
