السلام عليكم, Welcome to Northwest Islamic Community Center of Minnesota
The Northwest Islamic Community Center was established in 2009. We started this journey to provide Islamic education and services to the Northwest suburb of Minneapolis. Due to the rapid growth of the Muslim community, we feel that there is a greater need for a Masjid/Community Center in this area. Our goal is to provide Islamic education and services to our Muslim and Non-Muslim community. We will cater to the traditions of Islam by conducting social, cultural and educational activities.
Al-Humdulillah, we are proud to offer great services to our community such as:
- Daily 5 times prayers
Friday Family Halaqa
Monthly Community Get Together (Great Food!)
ECID - Islamic Pre-School for 2 - 5 year old
Islamic Kids Fest
Iftaar & Taraweeh during Ramadan
Chand Raat Festival
Kids Eid toy drive
Food drives and meals for seniors
and much more....

Kids Hajj Program - 2013
I would like to start this off with a big thank you for your support for NWICC both in terms of your time and your wealth. Mashallah we raised roughly $165,000 in our last fundraiser. We used $65,000 to pay the loan down for the masjid (currently slightly less than $300,000) and the remaining ~$100,000 we are planning to use for Phase 2.
Phase 2 basically consists of finishing the garage/dining area by building classrooms and a banquet hall. More specifically Phase 2 consists of building 6 classrooms that are to be used for an Islamic Daycare / preschool and a 5500 square foot banquet hall. The additional classrooms will also be used for our Sunday school which currently has 80 students enrolled. The current space is already inadequate for the Sunday school. Thus Phase 2 involves both a business aspect (Daycare / preschool) and a construction aspect.
The construction aspect involves:
1. Excavating and leveling the existing floor. The current floor has a significant slope and is asphalt (which is not a healthy substance to have in an indoor space)
2. Pouring concrete to create a new floor
3. Installing 16 exterior windows
4. Building a new entrance
5. Building walls for the new classrooms
6. Significant Electrical work including new lighting
7. Installing a heating and ventilation system
8. Painting, installing doors, and other finishing touches
All of this is estimated to cost ~$250,000. Currently we only have $100,000 available to spend on Phase 2. Thus we expect to only finish items 1, 2, & 3 until we raise more funds. We are waiting until the summer construction season is over and construction companies are idle to get the best rates for our construction needs.
The business aspect involves the development of an Islamic daycare / preschool. This service is considered essential since we are seeing so many young Muslim families flocking to the western suburbs for the good schools and to be near a masjid. Additionally, the pre-school will generate significant funds for the masjid, making it more financially independent. We are working on a business plan for the pre-school and invite interested members of the community to join us to create a coherent and viable plan. This is a great Islamic investment opportunity. We will soon reach out to investors to participate in this project so stay tuned.
