The Belfast Islamic Centre was established in 1978 by a group of Muslims from the local community. Today, the centre not only acts as a place of worship, but also is a community centre, social-cultural centre, resource centre, advice centre and a day centre.

It has been approximated by the Belfast Islamic Centre that there are around 4-5 thousand Muslims living in Northern Ireland today. The Muslims in Northern Ireland come from over 40 countries of origin, from Western Europe all the way through to the Far East. The main aims and objectives of the Belfast Islamic Centre are to: -
