Since the inception of Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in 1983 CE / 1403 AH. The needs of the Muslim Community and that of its interfaith neighbors have been paralleled by, and reflected in, Dar Al-Hijrah’s growth. For approximately eight years a house, which remains to this day on the premises, served as the original masjid. Located along Route 7 in Falls Church, VA, the site of the masjid was chosen due to its accessibility and close proximity to the major suburban regions that constitute the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area. Dar Al-Hijrah has a strong community from which to establish itself with approximately 40,000 Muslims residing in the area that the center serves. Construction of the current facility began in 1986. Despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles, the facility was opened on March 2, 1991 / Sha`ban 15, 1411. Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center is a non-profit organization registered in the State of Virginia with a federal tax I.D. number 31-1256417.Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center has been affiliated with the Muslim American Society (MAS) since 1999.
