History of Islamic Center of Fullerton (ICOF).
Previously known as Vietnamese Muslim Community.
The idea of the Islamic center of Fullerton grew out of the concerns of a small group of Vietnamese Muslim families, mostly immigrants who settled in Orange County. The need to preserve their religious identity, cultural heritage, and desire to educate their children in Islamic principles drew these families together, often on weekends.
Initially a small group comprised of 10-15 families started to meet on weekends. Meetings were initially held in private homes. Over a period of time, through word of mouth, more families started to get together and the group realized the need for a permanent home.
In 2004 Brother Musa Asari decided to rent a facility and established Vietnamese Muslim Community 501 (C) 3 a nonprofit organization. In 2017 community realized the need to create a better structure and to be more inclusive it was suggested to change the name from VMC to ICOF and established first board of directors under ICOF.
Serve With Gladness: Get Involved
You were not meant to just go to Masjid on a Friday; you were meant to be the Masjid, to serve Masjid and to be serving the community. Yet, with busy schedules consisting of full-time jobs, appointments, running errands and more, how exactly do we serve our community?
ICOF has always been proud of helping the community and keeping masjid maintained and open to public.
