About IAGM

Since the establishment of Masjid Al-Noor in 1997, the Muslim community in Memphis has grown tremendously.  Along with it, the needs and priorities of the community have also matured beyond all expectations. Islamic Association of Greater Memphis (IAGM) was established as a 501(c) 3 non-profit religious organization in 2007 to serve and accommodate the ever increasing needs of the Muslim community of the Greater Memphis area.

The purpose of IAGM is to establish and carry forth the message of the Qur’an and Sunnah.  It is our obligation to take the light of Islam and illustrate its beauty to all those around us in our community while integrating into society and preserving our Muslim identity.

For this purpose, IAGM seeks:

  • To promote, coordinate, and conduct activities and programs that will advance the religious, social, economic, educational, civic, cultural, and ethnic ambitions of the Muslims in the Greater Memphis area.
  • To provide an Islamic environment for our youth, an environment where our youth can grow and develop.
  • To educate the society at large about authentic Islamic teachings and principles.
  • To promote amiable relations between Muslims and everyone in society.
  • To serve the society in which we live through all Islamically approved means.
  • Provide guidance, assistance, aid the socioeconomic well being of the Muslim community and at large.
