The Islamic Cultural Center of New York – Stamford is a religious and cultural organization since 1982, based in Stamford Connecticut. The original plan of the Islamic Cultural Center of New York was to become a Muslim institution comprised of a Mosque, school, library, a lecture hall, a family friendly play area, and a community center.

In addition to partnering with community leaders, ICCNY-Stamford resources are meant to give Muslims (and non-Muslims) a much needed source of reference to help revive interest in our collective history and the importance of past personalities and places.

The entries shown on this site are by no means comprehensive. Insha’Allah we hope to build upon the content over time and introduce many more resources community events.

The prophet Muhammad (saw) frequented the mosque and prayed there. This is referred to in a number of hadith:

As narrated by ‘Abdullah bin Dinar:

Ibn ‘Umar said, “The Prophet used to go to the Mosque of Quba every Saturday (sometimes) walking and (sometimes) riding.” ‘Abdullah (Ibn ‘Umar) used to do the same. Vol 2, Book 21, Number 284 Sahih Bukhari

As narrated by Ibn ‘Umar:

The Prophet used to go to the Mosque of Quba (sometimes) walking and sometimes riding. Added Nafi (in another narration), “He then would offer two Rakat (in the Mosque of Quba).” Vol2, Book21, Number 285 Sahih Bukhari
