The establishment of functioning families is a critical component of a healthy and flourishing society. Islam sets to establish families as morally guided, virtuous and healthy functioning units; leading to a high level of moral awareness, and a strong commitment to purposive orientation of all human behavior.
When Islam was revealed to mankind it paid a great deal of attention to the establishment of strong families and protecting them from things that could harm them, and preserving family ties whilst giving each member of the family an important role in life.
Join the 25,000+ Muslims this year insh’allah at the annual ICNA convention as we come together to shine light the essence of family, faith and future.
Established on September 1st, 1968, the Islamic Circle of North America was a response to the growing need for a supportive Muslim community in North America.
The organization initially focused on educating its growing membership about Islam, the goal being to adhere to Islamic values amongst a religiously diverse community.
In the early 70s, ICNA members, the majority of whom were of South Asian descent, focused their efforts on education and personal/spiritual development.
