Our Mission

The Islamic Center of Michigan City (ICOMC) was founded by Muslim immigrants in 1912 and was incorporated with the State of Indiana in 1924. The ICOMC is not only a place for the community to bond but it is a sanctuary for those who seek nearest to Allah (SWT). We focus on the oneness of the mighty Lord (SWT), the teachings of the Holy Quran, and the Holy Messenger Muhammad and his immaculate household (Peace be upon them all). According to most authentic traditions in collections of both Sunni and Shi’a, Ahlul-Bayt (People of the House) of the Prophet are one of the two most precious Symbols of Islam after the departure of the Prophet (S). There are numerous traditions in the collection of both schools that the Prophet (S) has reminded us to stick to these two weighty things (al-Thaqalain), namely Qur’an and Ahlul-Bayt, in order not to go astray after him. We at the ICOMC continue to strive by holding on to the two weighty things and spreading peace and love to our bothers and sisters. 

Imam Ali (as) says in a letter to his righteous companion Maalik Al Ashtar "Remember, Maalik, that amongst your subjects there are two kinds of people: those who have the same religion as you have; they are brothers to you, and those who have religions other than that of yours, they are human beings like you. Men of either category suffer from the same weaknesses and disabilities that human beings are inclined to, they commit sins, indulge in vices either intentionally or foolishly and unintentionally without realizing the enormity of their deeds. Let your mercy and compassion come to their rescue and help in the same way and to the same extent that you expect Allah to show mercy and forgiveness to you".
