ادْعُ إِلِى سَبِيلِ رَبِّكَ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَالْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ
Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction (Qur'an 16:125)
IMAN programs and activities are open to all to come pray, learn, share, bond, serve, inspire and be inspired.
In addition to our daily prayer and weekly programs, we celebrate and commemorate various events throughout the year. On these special occasions we invite in-town and out-of-town speakers from various backgrounds and expertise to come share their knowledge, insight and experiences to inspire us. You will find details of our programs on the HOME page or in the EVENTS calendar. If you are late to RSVP, no issues, just come along anyway!
We get asked what would be appropriate attire to attend events at IMAN. Islam calls both men and women to dress modestly, to cover themselves conservatively. What we refer to as “business casual” (arms and legs covered and no deep-cut shirt-fronts) generally is appropriate.
If you have never been to a Muslim place of worship before, you may appreciate knowing that it is customary to remove one’s shoes upon entering the building and for women to cover their hair with a scarf. (Sometimes we have had to make arrangements to provide extra scarves for anyone who forgets to bring or does not have one. Let us know if this will be necessary.)
It is not customary for men and women to shake hands with persons of opposite gender when they greet each other.
Traditionally, people sit on the floor in an Islamic prayer hall, but we have chairs available for those who need them.
Our building is wheelchair accessible. Please let us know before if there are any special wheelchair friendly seating needs.
