Bentonville Islamic Center
Welcome to the Bentonville Islamic Center (BIC) in Northwest Arkansas, USA. Our community is a perfect blend and example of the unity in diversity, having people of different nationalities and languages working together in harmony with commitment towards building a perfect model of the lifestyle according to the noble principles of Islam.
Established in 2005 as a non-profit religious organization, the original members of the BIC started in a small home. As the community grew from a handful, the group decided to move on to larger rented halls, until finally moving into the current mosque located in Bentonville.
Today, we are a small community of 350+ members from the Northwest Arkansas and Southwestern Missouri. Our community members come from Bentonville, Rogers, Centerton, Lowell, Springdale, and many of the neighboring areas.
Our congregation is compromised of engineers, doctors, scientists, teachers, business owners and other professions working for the betterment of the entire community of Northwest Arkansas. We are a peace advocating group that participates with interfaith dialogues and events to ensure unity with all other faiths.
We hold the 5 prayers in the mosque, as well as the Friday Jumu'ah congregation every week.
Members of our Executive Team are:
President – Issa Aboud
Vice-President – Iftikhar Sheikh
Treasurer – Rizwan Khan
Secretary – Khalil Ahmed
