About Us

The Islamic Society of New River Valley is a non-profit 501(c) (3) corporation formed exclusively for religious, educational, and charitable purposes and headquartered in Blacksburg, Virginia. It serves the needs of the Muslim community in the New River Valley area as well as those of the larger community.

The ISNRV owns and operates a mosque, Masjid Al-Ihsan, and a Muslim cemetery. Masjid Al-Ihsan holds daily prayers, Jumu'a prayers, Eid prayers, Taraweeh prayers, and regular religious classes. In addition, it is host to the Sunday Islamic School that provides Quran, Islamic, and Arabic classes for young Muslims ages 6-16. The mosque is considered a community center for all activities that bring together the Muslim community: potluck dinners, weddings ceremonies, social gatherings, Ramadan Iftars, graduation parties, and many more.

The ISNRV is governed by a 7-member democratically elected Shura Council comprising men and women. The day-to-day operation of the Masjid and all its related activities are managed by an Executive Board and several Committee Chairs.

Moreover, the ISNRV collaborates closely with the Muslim Student Association (MSA) at Virginia Tech in organizing events and activities targeted at providing a welcoming and a spiritually-enriching environment for Muslim student community in Blacksburg.
