Introduction

Over the past few years, the Muslim Community within the Triangle area, and North Raleigh specifically, has grown and developed tremendously, and we hope to establish a place for worship and create an Islamic Center for our Muslim brothers, sisters, and youth. 

The MYCC-RDU strives to be a safe place for our youth, where we aim to teach our children how to maintain their Islamic identity while coming together to enjoy numerous social, athletic, educational, and religious activities.

Our Masjid includes a dome topped musalla, classrooms for a full time Islamic School, soccer fields and playgrounds for the youth, and an indoor gymnasium dedicated to the community space we aspire to establish.
