A brief introduction to Islam for those who want to begin to explore this beautiful religion. Includes a general overview and common misconceptions about Islam.


The Muslim community has had roots in Lexington since the early 70's. In the past 10 years we have added and expanded to our places of worship. Click here to find out more about locations and prayer times!
