Mission Statement

Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the world based on a simple message of worshipping only God. It is estimated that between 6000 - 8000 Muslims live in the greater Tulsa area. Over 1000 worshippers visit our mosque on a weekly basis and around 800 attend Friday prayer. Our goal is to support the local Muslim community and its spiritual development, provide education, and help build a stronger, more wholesome and successful Tulsa community through interfaith dialogue, community volunteerism and helping the needy.

Description

The Islamic Society of Tulsa is diverse in its membership; roughly 35% of local Muslims have roots from East Asian countries, 30% are from Arab countries, another 25% are African American with origins dating back to the 1700's. The remaining 10% are converts from a multitude of backgrounds. Many of our local immigrants came over to the U.S.A. beginning in the 1960's, have been citizens for over 40 plus years. Though their heritage is diverse, over 50% of Tulsa Muslims are American born and their political views are equally diverse.


The mosque is open for the five daily prayers and holds services on Fridays from 2:00 - 2:45pm. We provide a variety of educational programs and community building activities for our members and their guests.
