The Islamic Center of Morrisville was founded in Ramadan of 2009 in order to serve the Muslim community in Morrisville, West Cary and RTP in North Carolina. By the Grace of Allah, during the past six years the community has grown tremendously. ICM welcomes all residents of the RTP area, regardless of their backgrounds, and offers a variety of Islamic programs for all age groups.
Currently, the Jumuah prayer is held in four shifts at ICM Multipurpose Hall location to allow everyone to attend the Friday prayer.
ICM offers a variety of Islamic programs for everyone in the community. The youth can enjoy weekly programs, including halaqas (short lectures), games, sports as well as many outings. Women in the community have the opportunity to get together to learn on a weekly basis. The ICM imam, Manzar-ul-Islam Al-Azhari, offers Quran classes and halaqas regularly. He gives short talks (khatiras) after fajr and Isha prayers. He also teaches Quran classes in the musallah (prayer hall).
