Sayings of the day (Nahjul Balagah) : Amir al-mu’minin, peace be upon him, said: During civil disturbance be like an adolescent camel 1 who has neither a back strong enough for riding nor udders for milking. (Hadith n. 1)

Welcome to the Islamic Education Center

Living in a country of such diverse ethnic, religious and sociopolitical culture places a great burden on the community to develop a renewed sense of discipline and knowledge — knowledge that has become vital for our existence. The religion and its foundation rest solely upon the nature and integrity of its followers. The immigration of the followers of Shi’a Ithna-Ashari (twelver) jurisprudence to United States, especially to Chicago-land area dates back to early 1960’s, if not earlier. The community was disbursed and most of the Islamic programs were held in individual houses or at rental facilities.
