Quran Verse of the Week

Allah (swt) says in Surat Al Baqarah:

O men, serve your Lord Who created you and those before you, so that you may guard against evil; Who made the earth a resting place for you, and the heaven a structure; and sends down rain from the clouds, then brings forth with it fruits for your sustenance; so do not set up rivals to Allah while you know (2:21-22)".

Faith is an important aspect of a Muslim's life. ISNRV strives to provide an enriching spiritual experience to Muslims in the New River Valley by holding daily congregational prayers, Friday sermons and prayers, Eid Prayers, and several religious activities that focus on the study of the Quran and the tradition of our beloved prophet (pbuh). Please, refer to our Calendar of Events to browse the different programs we offer.
Community and Family
Family in Islam is the building block of a community. The facilities at Masjid Al-Ihsan provides a welcoming community center where families, students, and children find venues to come together to worship, learn, and socialize. Click here to view some of the pictures from previous events.
