ABUBAKAR ISLAMIC CENTER OF LOUISVILLE
The Abubakar Islamic Center was established in 2008 as The Louisville Mosque, a nonprofit, non-political, religious organization. Later due to a name conflict with another organization, its name was changed to Abubakar Islamic Center of Louisville Inc.
In 2009, the Masjid decided to expand the scope of its service activities by establishing an academic religious-parochial School. This school now has 200 students, in addition to Islamic Studies and Arabic.
The growing population of Muslims prompted the Masjid to address the need for a formal Quranic teaching/hifz (memorizing/learning the Holy Quran) facility. This necessitated the establishment of The Louisville Dar-Al-Cilm (in 2010) with a hostel facility for full-time resident students. This institution now has 27 students, two qualified full-time instructors, and a dorm warden.
Realizing the importance of Muslim burial facilities in a predominantly non-Muslim country, the Masjid Board in 1982 acquired 5 acres of land to establish a Muslim cemetery. This facility (burial capacity of 2,000) is one of the very few Muslim cemeteries available in this country. To date, approximately 300 Muslims from various parts of the country have been buried in this cemetery.
Alhamdu-lillah, the Abubakar Islamic Center of Louisville Organization has made tremendous strides toward establishing a number of important Islamic institutions. All the past achievements are the results of Allah's grace exhibited through active participation and monetary help of local Muslims.
