Reason for Eid date:

ICNWA Masjid Committee adopts the following understanding regards to hilal (Moon Sighting):

* The Masjid appoints individuals to go on top of Mt. Sequoya to sight the moon.
* If the moon is not sighted, then the Masjid Committee on behalf of the community has decided to seek regional sighting from other communities.
* The Masjid refers to AMJA(Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America) who comprise of a committee of Islamic Scholars. (Website: https://amjaonline.org/en/)
* Based on the decision of AMJA, ICNWA Masjid follows that opinion.

If you have any questions regarding our approach, please visit our “Contact Us” Page and send us a message.

Thank You,

ICNWA Masjid Committee

Welcome

Northwest Arkansas is home to a strong and growing Muslim community consisting of Muslims of many ethnic backgrounds. Since 1994, the Islamic Center of Northwest Arkansas(ICNWA) has served the needs of this diverse group of Muslims in Fayetteville and the surrounding areas.

The Masjid holds five daily prayers seven days a week, including the Friday congregational prayer, Al-Jumu’ah. Also, the ICNWA holds Taraweeh prayers during Ramadan, and both Eid prayers.

ICNWA also runs a Sunday School that serves both children and adults. Here, students can learn Arabic, Islamic Studies and Quran. In addition, there are adult classes held weekly to discuss various Islamic topics.

Our community members take pride in being active in community events both in and outside of the masjid. Community service is a priority in Islam, and we strive to contribute in many ways. We always welcome visitors.

Northwest Arkansas is one of the fastest growing regions in all of Arkansas. The nearby towns of Springdale, Rogers, Johnson, Lowell, and Bentonville are all served by the ICNWA and have all seen increased Muslim populations.

Objectives:

  • To provide a place for Muslims to offer the five daily prayers and participate in other religious affairs.
  • To administer the religious affairs of the communty by following the Quran and Sunnah.
  • To convey the message of Islam and its teachings to Muslims as well as non-Muslims in Northwest Arkansas.
  • To strengthen the bonds between Muslims in the community.
  • To engage in community service through charitable givings, helping the needy and humanitarian efforts.
  • To promote better interfaith relationships through cultural and educational activities.
