As Salaamu Alaykum, welcome, and thank you for visiting the Gwynn Oak Islamic Community (GIC) online. GIC is a community based organization that comprises some 60 Muslim families living within the Howard Park - Gwynn Oak area of Baltimore City. GIC has come together to establish Islamic life by becoming neighbors living together within a one mile radius.
It is our goal to establish Islamic life within the borders of Gwynn Oak; using the Sunnah of the Prophet of Allah (may Allah be pleased with him). We seek to attain our goal by first living together as neighbors, who worship, educate, carry out business and raise our families together in accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad (may Allah be pleased with him). It is our goal to establish every facet of Islamic life within the borders of Gwynn Oak, starting with the purchasing of as many homes and providing them to Muslim families.
Masjid Al Ihsan
Masjid Al Ihsan is the first mosque built from the ground up in the City of Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
Masjid Al Ihsan was established in January of 2014. GIC currently has established the prayers and Islamic classes at the Masjid. Upon completion of the Masjid construction, Insha’Allah GIC will institute Jumu’ah Prayer as well as expand classes and services to the Muslims and Non-Muslims Neighbors.
Pending completion of Masjid construction
