Burbank Islamic Center started out of a community need in the Summer of 2012. Ever since, we have been overwhelmed by the amount of dedication to the masjid, shown by volunteers, regular community members, visitors, and everyone in between.
In the Summer of 2012, Burbank Islamic center was a prayer hall, able to accommodate daily prayers and the weekly Friday service. Since then, we have been blessed by Allah to be able to expand to include a multi-purpose room and a large women’s prayer area. We have top notch restroom facilities and wudu stations. By the grace of Allah and then by the help of the community, we were able to buy many things for our Friday game night such as: a top-of-the-line ping pong table, foosball, air hockey, Nintendo Wii, PS3, many board games, and more. We were able to double the size of our parking lot, create a fully functional children’s playground, and many more projects are under way.
We are on the cutting edge of giving the community new and interactive ways to integrate the ways of the teachings of Islam into daily life. In 2014, we held a comedy show, we launched Game Night 2.0 and we held the first “M” games. The support we’ve seen is overwhelming and we look forward to bringing new and exciting programs to the center.
