Al-Farooq Masjid was established in 1980 as a religious institution devoted to the service of the international Muslim community of greater Atlanta and the southeastern United States of America. At the time it was one of a few mosques in the southeastern United States. Since then, it has also served the community at large by promoting goodwill and understanding about Islam and represents a vibrant community from all walks of life that strives to serve Islam.
