The Islamic Association of Raleigh strives to provide an inclusive environment for our community members with special needs and disabilities.

The main building has a wheelchair-accessible prayer hall and bathrooms, as well as elevator access to the upper floors. IAR has a few wheelchairs available for use on site on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Every 1PM Jumuah Khutbah is live-streamed with ASL interpretation as well.
