About Us

We, The Islamic Center of Minnesota, are an organization that has been in operation for almost 50 years. We began with a small house in Dinkytown and soon became the first Islamic Center in Minnesota with the founding of Masjid AbuKhadra in 1969. We have since expanded to include a larger community space in Fridley. We strive to be a place of comfort and religious growth as well as provide avenues for spiritual, social, and civic engagement. We serve our community by providing programs on topics such as education, mental health, convert support, and many other important issues. We also run a monthly food shelf and a weekly health clinic, host a full time Islamic school, and hold a variety of local community and interfaith events.

Our Story

In 1969, a group of Muslim students who chose to make Minnesota  their permanent home, formally started the Islamic Center of Minnesota in Dinkytown. Later, 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 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.
