Who Are We
About The Muslim Community Center of Charlotte
In 2013 a small group of believers from the North Charlotte area got together and endeavored to build a new Mosque to serve this part of town. We put a down payment on this property. By 2017, we had paid off the property, rented a gymnasium, and hired Imam John Ederer with the goal of raising a million dollars in a year from around 150 people in order to build the first phase and move into the new property. All praise and thanks to Allah, we were blessed with our goal and moved into this beautiful new 10,000 sq. ft. mosque in August of 2018.
We have since grown by around a hundred attendees a year forming a diverse community of believers. We look to build our faith collectively through studying and following the Quran and the example of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). We hope to revive that beautiful model through an established Mission, Vision, and Core Value System that inspires a path toward growth and collective accountability.
