About the ICT

The Islamic Center of Tucson (ICT) is located in Tucson AZ, situated near the world renowned University of Arizona, and serves as both a prayer space and a community center catering to all Muslims of Southern Arizona and the larger Southern Arizona community as a whole.

Our community is as diverse as the United States itself, with individuals from all continents and all walks of life.  Although the history of our community traces its roots back to university students that attended the University of Arizona in the 1960's, it has grown to encompass thousands of community members from converts to multi-generational families to young upstarts and more.  Our center is open every day of the year and serves as a place of worship, a place of gathering,  a hub for community events, interfaith dialogue, and a cultural resource, yet is still faithful to its roots, the students of the University of Arizona.

Our center welcomes visitors of all faiths and is open to anyone who wants to learn about our religion and our ever-growing community. Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) instructed us clearly, "Let anyone who believes in God and the Last Day be generous to his neighbor, and let anyone who believes in God and the Last Day be generous to his guest."

While we are looking for a new Religious leader, the center currently has a group of individuals and visiting guests that lead congregational prayers, deliver the Friday sermon, and lead many religious activities for the Muslim community as well as provide information to non-Muslim visitors.  Our community is also dedicated to the larger community of Tucson and Southern Arizona and we are more than willing and happy to arrange a visit for anyone who wants to stop by the Islamic Center of Tucson and learn about us.

ICT CONSTITUTION FINAL(Updated 3/4/2016)


A Note From The Chairman

Peace be upon you all, Asalamu Alaikum,
Dear fellow Muslims, Arizonans, and visitors of our website, 

Welcome to the Islamic Center of Tucson (ICT).

Allow me to introduce you to our small, diverse, and vibrant community. Muslims in Tucson come from all walks of life and have called Tucson home for over 50 years now. They came to the University of Arizona as early as the 1960's and they also came to partake in businesses, to contribute to this great country, and to worship peacefully and enjoy the freedom that this country provides. 

Our Islamic Center has and still continues to see an evolution in our population and our Muslim Community. This began with the few students who began praying at the U of A Student Union back in the 60's and 70's to the few hundred Muslims who pulled money together to buy a small house on 1st St. and Warren Ave. in the middle of the U of A Campus and turned it into a Mosque and to the now close to 10,000 Muslims that hail from every corner of this Earth and attend our new large and modern Mosque/Center. Our center is in the middle of a great learning institution (The University of Arizona) and plays a big role in the Southern Arizona Community and beyond.  

Come visit, inquire, learn, suggest or simply help us all become better citizens and better humans any day. 

May the peace wait for you wherever you go.

Chairman, ICT Board of Directors
