Who Are we?
The United States of America always welcomes immigrant and refugee families from around the world. ALRASOOL ISLAMIC CENTER (AIC) was founded in 1998 by a few Shia Muslims with a small room space in the heart of Salt Lake City. In the year 2002, Utah became a hub for opportunities, and people started moving to Utah, especially to Salt Lake City for education, business, and career opportunities. In 2008 as the Shia Muslim population grew, the AIC Executive Committee decided to buy a bigger facility to fulfill daily Shia Muslim religious and social activities. Since 2008 AIC has been an association of Shia Muslims who serve more than five thousand multi-ethnic Muslims and non-Muslim communities living around the greater Salt Lake City area. AIC is a nonprofit Utah organization and has been designed for 501(c)(3) religious non-profit organizations by the Internal Revenue Service. In 2023 AIC building was nominated as a Utah Historic Site.
