About Us

The Islamic Society of Northwest Ohio is a 36,000-square-foot facility located at 850 S. McCord Rd. It is one of at least 10 mosques in the Toledo area.

In addition to a large prayer hall, the building is expected to encompass a lecture hall, gymnasium, and, possibly, a banquet hall. Future plans include a food pantry and free medical clinic.

“We hope that the center will be a resource for Islamic information in our community, and we are looking forward to inviting the community at large to join us for our events and activities”

Imam Farooq S. Aboelzahab is the spiritual leader of the Islamic Society of Northwest Ohio and more than 100 families are plugged into the Islamic Society of Northwest Ohio.
