The Islamic Center of America is a mosque in Dearborn, Michigan, opened in 2005, that claims to be the largest in North America. It caters mainly to the Shi’a Muslim congregation; however, all Muslims may attend this mosque.
The Islamic Center of America is located at 19500 Ford Road in Dearborn. The institution was founded in 1963 by Muhammad Jawad Chirri, who remained its director until his death in 1994. The current Imam is Sayed Hassan Al-Qazwini.
The Islamic Center of America is completed with the cost of $12 million, a centerpiece in what members say will become the largest Arab American religious and cultural facility in North America.
