Our History

Delmarva Muslim Community

DMC mosque (formerly known as Islamic Society of Delmarva) was established in 1995 by a group of brothers, including Akbar, Dawood, Haji Saleem, Hajir Abdi, Khalid Ansari, Muhammad Sheikh, Mushtaq, Ramadan, Yousuf, and many more. They discovered an old church previously used by Jehovah's Witnesses, which was available at an affordable price. Recognizing the potential for a mosque, the brothers purchased the building and converted it into a welcoming space for Muslims to worship and connect with their faith.

Over time, DMC mosque has expanded its premises by acquiring surrounding land to accommodate the growing Muslim community in the area. The mosque also established its own graveyard for Islamic burials, providing a final resting place for Muslims in accordance with their religious beliefs.

Today, DMC mosque continues to serve as a spiritual and cultural center for Muslims in the community, offering a range of programs and services aimed at promoting unity and remains dedicated to upholding the values of Islam and providing a welcoming space for all.

Our Mission

DMC strives to offer services that align with the Quran and Sunnah while acknowledging the unique nuances and obstacles of the American Muslim journey. Our goal is to nurture a generation of exceptional American Muslim leaders and intellectuals who will advance a community that embodies high ethics and outstanding principles.

Our Vision

DMC's vision is to set an example of a vibrant Muslim community, nurturing spirituality, faith, education, creativity, and inclusiveness, for the benefit of future generations. We aspire to uphold the values of Islam through our actions and serve as a beacon of hope for Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
