Ramadan at the IC
It’s the first week of the hottest month in America’s busiest city.  That’s stressful enough — and you’re fasting too! Don’t worry, the Islamic Center will help you through it. Join us for a free dinner (iftar) to break your fast every weeknight of this blessed month. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to the community or have been here for years.  We welcome everyone.  It’s all part of what makes the Islamic Center special, and what will make your time in NYC unforgettable.  This Ramadan come experience what community should feel like.

During Ramadan, our free iftar dinners will travel the globe and include everything from Carribean, Italian and Mexican to soul food, subs and South Asian, as well as Lebanese, Chinese, Persian and Moroccan thrown in for good measure.  (Need we even mention that there are vegetarian options available every night, too?)   We will also hold lectures and discussion groups on a variety of topics throughout the month, insha’Allah. Finally, at the end of the month, we will celebrate Eid al-Fitr with prayers and brunch open to the entire community!  These are just some of the numerous services offered here at the Islamic Center at New York University.

What is the IC?

The Islamic Center at New York University (ICNYU) traces its roots to a student run organization that started in the late ’70s to serve the needs of NYU’s growing Muslim community.  Overseen by NYU’s Office of the Muslim Chaplain, the Islamic Center decided to reach beyond the academic halls of NYU to serve the larger New York City (NYC) community; today, the IC serves residents not only in lower Manhattan but throughout the Tri-state area.  Young professionals, high school and college students, and local community members flock to the IC for its renowned scholarly, religious and social programming.
