About Us

Located a few miles south of Downtown Los Angeles, Masjid Bilal Islamic Center has a rich history and tradition that spans more than half a century. Formerly called Muhammad's Temple of Islam #27 and located at 5606 Broadway, the community has played an essential role in the growth of Muslims throughout the Southern California area. In 1971, Abdul-Karim Hasan was selected to lead the Muslim community. Under his leadership, the community would purchase its current property in May of 1973, which would help shape the dynamics for Islamic growth in the city. During the 70's, Allah blessed Masjid Bilal's propagation efforts, which reached tens of thousands of Americans, including prominent city officials and some of the world's best-known celebrities, who attended our events. In 1974, Abdul Karim Hasan helped establish the State of California's first Muslim Prison Ministry program, becoming an official advisor to the Director of the California Department of Corrections, and was the first Muslim member of the State Advisory Committee for institutional religion (S.A.C.I.R.).
