  • We, the Muslim community in Ann Arbor had a dream:  a school focused on “Excellence in Education, while nurturing Islamic Character.” Twenty eight years ago,  the original masjid was built, seven classrooms and library.  The number of students increased; ten years later the building expanded.  Now, 230 students are enrolled for the coming year and we have had to refuse many more for lack of space. You can earn the reward of saadiqah jaariyah in the blessed month of Ramadhan by donating to the building program!
