Our Vision

As Muslims began to migrate to America in the 70’s, there arose a need for Islamic Scholars and Imams to lead and educate them in their new land. Some Scholars and Imams were invited from overseas to help fulfill this purpose. But now with the coming of the new generation-the generation of American born Muslims-there is a need to produce and prepare scholars and Imams that would understand, relate to and serve our future Muslim communities.

It is this vision that The Islamic Association of Arabi wishes to fulfill and to produce the young Muslims who will fulfill the sacred posts of Imams and Scholars, address Islamic legal and social issues and challenges unique to the American context, and convey with clear expression the true spirit of Islam to non-Muslims in America.
