The Islamic Center of Ventura County was founded in 1993. The foundation is registered as a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization setup exclusively to serve the religious education, charity, and the practice of Islam in our community.
A humble, very committed group of eight Muslims worked diligently and with the blessing of Allah (God) founded a small facility to rent in the heart of downtown Oxnard, CA. Meetings were conducted every Sunday to reach out and invite more Muslims to the center. Since then, the number of attendees has grown substantially. The center has 3 rooms for prayer and 3 bathrooms equipped with Wudu (Ablution) accommodations. The importance for the center is to bring Muslims and non-Muslims together in order to educate about our faith and way of life.
We wholeheartedly express our gratitude and appreciation to all those who served on the board in the past and also to those who volunteer their time. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our donors, supporters and community members for their help and encouragement and look forward to their continuous support. Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) has blessed us with this facility, so we humbly encourage everyone to attend the daily congregational prayers and be active contributing members to our community.
Our vision is to inspire our current and future generations to build a continuous relationship with Allah (God) by maintaining an environment of constant remembrance of Him and applying the values of the prophetic model.
Our mission is to develop, support and promote a comprehensive Islamic complete way of life as delineated in the Holy Qur’an, and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
We strive to provide charitable and humanitarian help to the entire community, as well as to reach out and present Islam through educational and cultural activities, which are consistent with the teachings and principles of Islam.
We contribute to strengthen the bonds between Muslims and Non-Muslims alike by establishing a united community through effective interfaith partnership, tolerance, and respect amongst the people of California, U.S.A.
