“My husband and I have been going to the ICGT since we moved to Toledo. It is a beautiful and unique Islamic center. Our kids have been attending Sunday school and learning about Islam, Qur'an, Sunnah, and stories about the Prophets.Iftar dinners and Taraweeh in Ramadan bring the whole community together. The highlight of the ICGT is the International Festival that represents Muslim countries, exhibits Islamic culture & food and helps the local non-Muslim community learn about Islam.The community outreach programs like the Mobile food bank, Holiday toy drive and visiting scholar’s lectures represent Muslims and Islam in a great way. I think it is a great Islamic institution for our community.;”

“ICGT is a poster child for what I consider American Islam. Having lived in Columbus, Houston, and Nashville, I can honestly say that there is no Islamic Center I've been to that comes close to ICGT in terms of openness, community camaraderie, quality programs, and vision. This is the only center where I've seen Islam rise above cultural mores and practices, thus making it a welcoming and nurturing place for people from many different backgrounds united by a common bond -- Islam. Islam should always transcend the bonds of nationalism and tribalism that is so common in the other Muslim communities. I read somewhere that <5% of Muslims in America attend a mosque regularly. I truly believe that it is because the vast majority of American Muslims feel sidelined and not included in the their community, where more often than not special events or speakers cater only to the dominant ethnic group, their cultural mores and understanding of religion. It is such places that are, inadvertently or not, exclusionary, that merely exist, and not thrive. ICGT is different in that key respect. It welcomes everyone. ICGT is meant to thrive, to be the beating heart and a shining example of American Islam.;”

“The Islamic Center is truly one of the most unique and welcoming spaces I have experienced. The center has much to offer, even beyond its programming. Diversity is a cornerstone of this mosque community, which has allowed for an international festival and continual learning about other perspectives. In terms of programming, I have enjoyed the family Qur’an nights, Hadith for Life, Fajr club, Arabic classes, and the Sunday lectures. Outside of the programming, I have personally experienced a lot of intellectual and spiritual growth at the center, since community members have always been willing to help me learn the foundations of Islam. I have received much help with reading Qur’an and learning the basics of how to practice Islam. Due to this environment, I come here often also to just relax and have a space where I can be myself. ;”
