Database: Masjids, Mosques, and Islamic Centers in the U.S.

Ihsan Bagby, an associate professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Kentucky, in cooperation with researchers at the Hartford Institute of Religion Research, a source of policy-relevant research into contemporary religious life, engaged in a search for Masjids, Mosques, and Islamic Centers in the United States. The result is a state-by-state database of U.S. Islamic worship institutions and their denominational affiliations, addresses, contact information, and websites, located on the HIRR website. Initially published in 2013, the database is continually updated. Professor Bagby also conducted a study of American Mosques, from which he produced the 2011 Mosque Report, linked on a page of Faith Communities Today, a website produced by the Cooperative Congregations Studies Project, a multi-faith group of religious researchers and faith leaders. For more research on U.S. Congregations and faith communities, see our feature article, "Best Resources for Research," and the various categories under our "Research" tab.
