Islamic Center of Harrisburg
Welcome to the Islamic Center of Harrisburg, located in Harrisburg, North Carolina. Harrisburg is a town in Cabarrus county, a northeastern suburb of Charlotte. Harrisburg is known for good schools and low taxes which makes it a lucrative town for many families to move here.
ICH was established as a non-profit religious organization with the will and permission of Allah SWT in February 2019 to serve the Muslims of Harrisburg and surrounding areas. It is centrally and conveniently located to most Muslim residents of Harrisburg and East Charlotte within 10 minutes of driving distance to most Muslim residents of Harrisburg. Many Muslims could walk to ICH within minutes.
ICH has a total of 12.5 acres of land. It has a structure which is used for prayers. Over 11 acres of the property is wooded which offers a great potential for the Muslims of Harrisburg and surrounding areas to cater to their future needs with the will and permission of Allah SWT.
Mission and Vision
The mission of ICH is to seek the pleasure of ALLAH (SWT) by obeying HIS commands; enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong according to Qur'an and Sunnah and to build a united community through good manners and taking care of each other.
Development of ICH
It will broadly be a two phased approach In Sha Allah:
Phase I: To completely pay-off the outstanding balance of the property
Phase 2: Develop the wooded property. This phase would be further subdivided into multiple phases InShaAllah and prioritized depending on the need of the Muslim community and the availability of funds.

The property of ICH was purchased for $375,000. As of the beginning of Ramadan 2021, we have an outstanding balance of $280,000 to completely pay off the property of ICH. We request you to contribute generously to pay off the outstanding balance of ICH and thereby facilitate in building the house of Allah SWT.
Donations to build the house of Allah SWT is a continuous charity.
Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says in the Qur’an
Those who spend their wealth in charity day and night, secretly and openly—their reward is with their Lord, and there will be no fear for them, nor will they grieve (Surah Baqarah, Verse 274)
And donate from what We have provided for you before death comes to one of you, and you cry, “My Lord! If only You delayed me for a short while, I would give in charity and be one of the righteous.” (Surah Munafiqun, Verse 10)
Messenger of Allah ﷺ said
Do not show lethargy or negligence in giving alms and charity till your last breath. (Al-Bukhari, Muslim)
The Prophet ﷺ said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (At-Tirmidhi)
Narrated from Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever builds a masjid for the sake of Allah, like a sparrow’s nest or even smaller, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise.” (Ibn Majah - 738)
Please donate generously on your behalf and on behalf of your loved ones and the ones who have departed this world and take part in this noble effort of building the house of Allah SWT and thereby build for yourself and your loved ones a house in Jannah InShaAllah

Ramadan 2021 Update
This Ramadan of 2021 is our third Ramadan at ICH Alhamdulilah. We are blessed to have a very learned scholar (Mufti Yousuf Ahmed) at ICH during this Ramadan who would enlighten us through his talks during Taraweeh and Friday Khutbahs.
We will complete the recitation of whole Qur’an during Taraweeh prayers. We will pray 20 raka’ats of Taraweeh each night of Ramadan InShaAllah which will be led by
Mufti Yousuf Ahmed
Hafiz Mazhar Toqeer
Hafiz Aadil Siddiqui
Mufti Yousuf Ahmed would give a brief talk every night of Ramadan after 8 raka’ats of Taraweeh.
We welcome you and invite you to ICH and join us in daily prayers, Friday and Taraweeh prayers. Let’s utilize this Ramadan to get to know each other, develop brotherhood and build a good loving united community to please our Lord the almighty and thereby attain the highest place in Paradise after we depart this temporary world (Ameen).
May ALLAH SWT accept all our good deeds, make it easy for us and bless us with goodness in this world and Hereafter (Ameen)
