Who We Are
Striving to connect communities and uplifting neighborhoods using Principles of Divine Wisdom and the Prophetic Model.
Madina Community was formed to represent the needs of a large, diverse, and growing Muslim population in the Northern Illinois area. Though comprised of a number of cultures, ethnicities, and nationalities, the community shares a common belief rooted in the Islamic faith which recognizes the oneness of God (Allah), a belief in the Prophets (peace be upon them) sent to help guide humanity, including the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) who is the last prophet, as well as the teachings described in the faith’s holy book and recorded observations, the Qur’an and Sunnah, respectively.
The organization mission is abstracted in the following statement, “Madina Community is a multi-culture American community that strives to serve local needs using the principles of Divine wisdom and the Prophetic model.”
What We Do
— We Serve
— We Educate
— We Empower
— We Dialogue
We seek out opportunities for community outreach through our ambassador program which involves sending ambassador(s) to fulfill our mission of connecting American culture groups toward defining and building America’s future society. This is done utilizing a variety of means. An example of this program is supporting the African American Community of the Bahar Center in Marquette park in their Walk of Moral Excellence, as we did in 2017 and 2018. Through joining resources, we can help them organize programs to stop the violence, save lives, develop youth, take kids off the streets and back to school.

“(The righteous are those) who feed the poor, the orphan and the captive for the love of God, saying: ‘We feed you for the sake of God Alone; we seek from you neither reward nor thanks.'”
We’d like to acknowledge our partners, The Mecca Center and the Madina Community for allowing ICNA Relief to pack 500 food boxes for our struggling neighbors. May Allah bestow His mercy and blessings upon you.
