Harlem Community Islamic Center aims to create a community that transcends prejudices; a place to teach our young people the values of Islam according to the Quran and the Hadith; an open door to learning for all faiths; and respect for all people as the Prophet Mohammed S.A.W.S. taught.
As Allah says in surat number 3 verse 104:
Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful.
