Indianapolis Muslim Community Association started in 1970 as Masjid Al-Fajr, the first mosque in the Indianapolis area, located on Leon Street. At that time, only a handful of Muslims lived in the city. We broke grounds in our current location on Cold Spring Road in 1990, which turned a complex of Islamic life, including a Masjid, a full-time school, and a Sunday school. Most of other Indianapolis metro area mosques started as off-shoots of Masjid Al-Fajr.
We pride ourselves to be home to the most diverse Muslim community in town, exemplifying the brotherhood that is at the core teaching of our faith.
