About Us

Originally founded in 1985 in Arabi (a non-profit 501 (C) (3) organization), a suburb of New Orleans, Louisiana, The Islamic Association of Arabi began as a small masjid (Masjid Yaseen) and within five years, the first boarding Islamic institute in the United States was established. Between 1990 to 2005, sixty-five American born Muslim children completed memorization of the Holy Quran and another twenty-one went on to become Scholars in Islam. Today, Alhamdulillah, it is a sense of great pride that these products of The Islamic Association of Arabi are serving various masajids and communities all over our nation. It is also a great blessing of Allah that under the Masjid Yaseen Garland branch, to cater to the increasing demand of Islamic Knowledge to individuals of every demographic Al-Hameed Boy’s Academy and Amatur Rahman Girl’s Academy were established.
