About Polaris Masjid


The Islamic Center of Delaware County (ICDC) is the legal entity under which Masjid Polaris operates. It is a nonprofit community organization dedicated to serving the religious, social and educational needs of the local Muslim American community in accordance with the Qur’an and Sunnah.

We are members of the Northeast Central Ohio community comprising mainly of the following localities: Westerville, Lewis Center, Powell, Galena, Gahanna, New Albany, Worthington & Polaris Area.

We call forth all Muslims to set the highest standard as concerned citizens devoted to ethical behavior and justice for all; ideals that can be achieved by uniting and collectively holding on to the rope of Allah (God almighty); the Qur’an. We recognize that this will entail a constant struggle to become that middle nation, which is constantly striving to uphold the good whenever it is encountered and forbidding the evil wherever it may reside.

This, our shared responsibility, is formidable so individually we must dedicate ourselves to becoming walking talking ambassadors of Islam following in the footsteps of our illustrious Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

At the Islamic Center of Delaware County, we will strive to develop and leverage the collective community resources to launch initiatives that serve the Muslim and the greater non-Muslim community focusing on,

  • Promoting Islamic values and principles in accordance with the Qur’an and Sunnah
  • Providing religious and community services to the Muslims of Delaware County
  • Developing, promoting and distributing educational materials and programs for non-Muslims in the area
  • Reaching out and collaborating with local organizations for charitable and good will campaigns designed to assist those in need in the greater Columbus region
  • Dedicated Islamic initiation and ongoing mentor-ship and support for new Muslims

We welcome everyone to visit us, support us, and continually offer constructive ideas to better realize our united vision.  Let us not forget that we are all members of the same human fraternity; our differences are meant to be embraced; our diversity should become our strength if we wholeheartedly commit ourselves to get to know each other because, as Allah has made clear, we are all descendants of one man and one woman.
