Visitors are encouraged to ask questions about the Muslim faith and gain knowledge about the religion.

“I hope that this will provide a better understanding of what Islam is, and what it isn’t.,” said¬†Lyndsey El Bahi, a volunteer of the Islamic Center.”I just want to thank the community that has been reaching out to us to show support. It means so very much to each of us. It has been a hard time lately for many people of different, diverse groups. We all need to stick together.”
