Our History

Established in 1990, The Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPC) is an independent, 501c3 non-profit organization. Based in the heart of Paterson, New Jersey, we are home to one of the largest Muslim communities in the U.S serving a congregant base of over 25,000 people. Over the past years ICPC has established itself as a leader striving to serve three basic obligations, Community, Social Services, and Activism.

2016 marked the beginning of a new era in the history of ICPC, opening it’s second branch to serve the city of Clifton and its surrounding areas.

In 2021 we opened the third branch (Masjid Younis) to serve the city of Prospect Park and its surrounding areas.
