Thriving Community

In the early 1990s a second wave of immigrants from Somalia and Bosnia came to Kansas City. The Somali community settled in Northeast Kansas City and established Masjid Al-Huda. During that time period, Masjid Omar had to move to a small adjacent location, creating need for another Islamic Center, Al-Inshirah, which was opened at 3664 Troost Ave.  Kansas City, Missouri.

With the arrival and expansion of several national and international corporations in Overland Park, the Muslim population in Kansas City grew rapidly during the late 1990s. Two more Islamic Centers were established: The Islamic Center of Johnson County Islamic Center of Kansas at 14750 West 143 Street Olathe, Kansas.

In the Greater Kansas City area, serving an estimated 20,000 Muslims. Other notable mosques are the following:
