Fresno also offers very good markets for Middle Eastern/Indian cuisine. The International Market is the #1 place to go, but I have heard very good things about all of them.
Masjid Fresno Islamic Center (MFIC) was first established in 1979. Through donations from muslims all over the world, the existing building was completed in 1989. This two-story complex offers an open, comforting environment to the community. MFIC is running a very successful Outreach (Daawa) Program. Many people have reverted to Islam at MFIC and thousands of people call in and visit to learn about Islam every day through an established hotline and website. Weekly classes on Arabic and Islamic studies are held by the Imam of MFIC, Dr. El Sayed Ramadan, in addition to Qur’an classes and many other programs. If you have any questions or need further information, please feel free to contact us here.
Since its opening in 2001, the Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno has worked to promote an un-distorted, sincere and peaceful image of Islam and the American Muslim community. They have worked to do so by building community and relationships with religious organizations and centers, schools and districts, civic leaders and offices, and more.
In addition to religious and cultural understanding programs, ICCF is civically engaged (registering and educating voters, operating as a polling site, and bringing in those in office or running for office for encounters) and works to bring about understanding between its congregants and elected officials for greater community building.
ICCF is also a strong proponent of both inter and intra faith relationship building. As an interfaith leader, ICCF and its members are actively involved in just about every interfaith event and project in our community. As an intra-faith leader, ICCF actively leads the way in engaging all centers and organizations within the Muslim community to foster peace and to develop a greater sense of the Muslim American identity and what that means in the Central Valley.
Masjid Badr is located in the northwest part of Fresno, California. The masjid operates as Sierra Community Center. Masjid Badr was opened to service the growing Muslim community of the central valley. Masjid Badr is a on a 3 arce lot, with many outdoor activities. The activities include a soccer field, basketball court and jungle gym for the little ones. The masjid is opened for the daily five prayers (see here for times).
