About ISB

The Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB) is amongst the largest Muslim communities in the Baltimore/DC Metropolitan area. ISB is a non-profit 501c(3) organization which serves thousands of families in the mid-Atlantic region. ISB is governed by a 9-member democratically elected Council comprising of dedicated community members.


The Islamic Society of Baltimore was established in 1969 by a handful of families who held weekly meetings and Friday prayers at Johns Hopkins University. As the community continued to grow, the need for a larger facility also grew. In 1982, more than a decade later, ISB purchased an 8-acre lot at its current location and built Masjid Al-Rahmah. Three years later, a housing complex was built adjacent to the Masjid and by 1987, and a full-time primary school had been established. Within the next ten years, ISB founded the Quran Academy and Sunday school which were in full swing just in time for the completion of the multi-purpose hall in 1997. To meet the growing needs of our community we are currently in the expansion phase with a multi-phase Community Learning Center (CLC) project which is expected to be completed by 2010.


ISB aspires to be the anchor of a growing Muslim community with diverse backgrounds, democratically governed, relating to one another with inclusiveness and tolerance, and interacting with neighbors in an Islamic exemplary manner.
