The Islamic Society of Germantown is a non-profit, independent organization that culminated from years of dedication from a group of fellow Muslims who started working on the idea in 1998.
The ground breaking of the ISG masjid has started on July 10th, 2013 (Track current progress of the construction in our Photo Gallery section under Construction). Currently the site has been cleared, basement digging is finished, basement foundation has been finished and framing of the actual building has started. (For detailed pictures please visit our construction gallery). It is noteworthy that there are no other Islamic Centers or Mosques within a 10-mile radius. With over 400 Muslim families living in the close vicinity, having a place to pray, worship, learn more about Islam, and carry out necessary religious and cultural ceremonies (Marriage, Aqiqa, prayer for the deceased, collecting and distributing Zakat to those in distress, offering counsel and support for those in need, etc), has become an absolute necessity.
