Islamic Center of Saint Joseph

About Us


The Islamic Center of St. Joseph (ICSJ) is an Islamic center serving as a masjid and a gathering place for the Muslim community in St. Joseph. This is the first purpose-built mosque in Northwest Missouri – a nearly 100-mile expanse of smaller-sized communities that runs between Kansas City North and the Nebraska border.

Our mission

Is to efficiently serve not only our Muslim community but the Saint Joseph community at large.  We have built strong interfaith relationships with other religious institutions in the area as well as launched programs and volunteer efforts. Our cornerstone is built on education and community service.

The Islamic Center consists of a modern, purpose-built 3,000 sq. foot building providing a main musullah (prayer hall) and a private sisters’ musallah, a multipurpose area, office space, and a kitchen. Jummah (Friday) prayers are held at 1:30 p.m., with the Khutbah (sermon) beginning at 1 p.m. Eid prayers and special events (such as Nikkah ceremonies) are also held at ICSJ.

Our major educational services are Sunday school classes for children and adults. These classes teach the Qur’an and Arabic.

Social services include zakaat and sadaqa (alms and charity) distribution.

The Islamic Center of St. Joseph is blessed with the knowledge and guidance of several local leaders as well as the services of countless volunteers, the Board of Directors, and the Executive Committee.
