"To those who do good, there is good in this world, and the Home of the hereafter is even better. (Quran 16:30)"

Respected brothers and sister in Islam, An-Nur Foundation was first established in 1995 by 10 founding members who met at each other’s houses to recite and understand the Quran. In 1996, the 10 brothers bought a small house in the north east part of Baltimore county, which was used as a mosque. Over the course of years, the membership grew to more than 300+ members which the small house could no longer accommodate.
In 2008, An-Nur Foundation purchased 4.4 acres of land to build a mosque. Construction was estimated at $ 4-5 million dollars.  In 2010, the Foundation purchased the adjacent car dealership that was being liquidated by Chrysler Financial for $2.75 million dollars. This site already had 38,000 sq ft of existing buildings. The 5,000 sq ft showroom now serves as our mosque and Sunday School center.
