“They love those who emigrated to them and find not any want in their breasts of what the emigrants were given but give [them] preference over themselves, even though they are in need. And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul—it is those who will be the successful.” – Surah Al-Hashr, 59:9
This year more than ever, it is important that we make room for everyone; in our homes, in our community, and in our country. The refugees, new Muslims, and others in need have rights over us all—let us fulfill them in a manner pleasing to Allah Most High.
Make sure you can attend our very special iftar this Ramadan as we strive to make Minnesota a welcoming Home for All.

“Community Building through enlivening the Sunnah”
We strive to enliven the example of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) and the early generations of Muslims who “lived Islam” in every aspect of their lives. Islam provides the perfect roadmap for moral and social advancement and we envision vibrant and healthy environments where Islam’s lessons on charity are embraced and transformed into action on a daily basis for the good of all.
Sound communities are created out of shared effort and responsibility – each action by or for the sake of each individual is like a “building block” that reinforces the community. Thus, we aim to bring Muslims from all backgrounds to work together for the community’s well-being through means that are supported by authentic Islamic teachings – to enjoin good, help those in need, and above all, follow the commandments of Allah (Subhanahu wa Taala)
We believe in living together in peace and harmony where all of us are pillars of support for each other.
