From its humble beginnings in 1952 to its place in history as architects of the American Muslim identity, the Islamic Center of Southern California owes its success to the blessings of God and the tireless efforts of its members and volunteers.
From the leaders and visionaries who left their day jobs to serve and guide the community, to the moms who cooked homemade meals for hundreds of families each night in Ramadan … From the spiritual and civic leaders who inspired us with their moving sermons, to the volunteers who set up prayer rugs at dawn for thousands anxiously awaiting Eid…
This timeline pays tribute to all the founders, leaders and volunteers—too many to mention—who have helped make the Center a vibrant community where diversity, pluralism and the American Muslim identity thrive.
May God bless you for your contributions, leadership and guidance.
