ICWL was established to advance the cause of Islam and nurture the religious, educational, and social needs of the community. The center also aimed at fostering the outreach and relations with the greater community around it. The guidelines governing the activities of the center are based on the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
