PHILOSOPHY

At Denver Islamic Society/Masjid Al Nur, the community is diverse, and boasts of individuals from different continents and walks of life. Although the history of our community traces its roots back several decades, DIS has grown to encompass community members from converts to multigenerational families to young upstarts and more. Our center is open every day of the year and serves as a place of worship, a place of gathering, a hub for community events, interfaith dialogue, and a cultural resource.

Our center welcomes visitors of all faiths and is open to anyone who wants to learn about our religion and our ever-growing community. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) instructed us clearly, “Let anyone who believes in God and the Last Day be generous to his neighbor, and let anyone who believes in God and the Last Day be generous to his guest.”

 

Our community is also dedicated to the larger community of metro Denver and that of Colorado, and we are more than willing and happy to arrange a visit for anyone who wants to stop by and learn about us.

VISITING US

Denver Islamic Society/Masjid Al Nur is located at 2124 S Birch St, Denver, CO 80222, and given our convenient location off of I-25 and Evans Ave, we are easily accessible by road, as well as for public transit passengers using bus and light rail via the Colorado Blvd RTD station. We are usually open daily during the five prayer times, and we can give tours and help answer questions for visitors, if an appointment is scheduled in advance by emailing us.

We have two parking lots - in the front of the facility and the rear. The entrance for the men's section is close to the front parking lot, and the entrance for the ladies' section is close to the rear parking lot. We look forward to you visiting us!
