The Auburn Islamic Center (AIC) serves the Auburn-Opelika community and the surrounding communities in Lee County, Alabama. The current Masjid is housed in a two-story residence purchased in 1990. The mosque is at its capacity during Friday prayer services. We also have an Islamic School on Saturdays with almost 50 students. AIC has purchased a 5-acre land approved by the city of Auburn to build a mosque. The tentative cost for the new mosque is almost $4 million. Auburn Islamic Center is trying to raise money to start the new AIC.
A 2004 board-sponsored report surveyed the Auburn Muslim community to determine facility needs. The board has purchased a 5-acre parcel on a partially wooded site south of town suitable for a future Auburn Islamic Center (AIC) with up to 10,000 sf. of heated floor space. The future AIC building will provide expanded prayer and Islamic school capacity with a multi-use area planned to accommodate at least 400 persons. The parcel also provides ample room for 150 car parking and a cemetery. The estimated construction cost of the new mosque is approximately $4 million. The AIC has raised approximately $450,000 to date. Please donate generously to raise the remaining funds.
