Thank You For Your Support

The Islamic Association of Raleigh is grateful for the outpouring of kindness and support it has received from the broader Triangle community. Despite growing bigotry and xenophobia targeting Muslims, the overwhelming number supportive and thoughtful messages from faith leaders, public authorities, and our neighbors has affirmed to us the inherent goodness of the human spirit. While we are unable to individually reply to every supportive message, we wholeheartedly extend our deepest gratitude and appreciation to all. The IAR also extends an invitation for weekly visitation opportunities to visit the facility and meet with local Muslims between 6:00-7:00pm on Wednesdays.
