Our Story

The Islamic Center of Golden is a place of congregational prayer that was founded in 1992 by Muslim students and other community members. 

As members of the Muslim community grew over the years, the Center moved in 2016 from the small facility on 19th Street to the current, multi-purpose building.

Due to its proximity to Colorado School of Mines, a large number of Muslim international students worship at our Center. 

The Islamic Center of Golden strives to serve the religious and educational needs of Muslims in Golden and beyond. It also seeks to help develop a sense of community by becoming active members in our city and state. The Center embraces interfaith dialogue that promotes greater understanding and fosters mutual respect and acceptance of each other as fellow human beings and citizens.

Book Recommendations

Refuting ISIS

From the website www.refutingisis.com:

The Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS) constitutes the most serious threat Islam has ever faced.

To justify its horrible crimes and appeal to Muslims around the world, ISIS has based its ideology on a superficial and literalist approach to the Sacred Texts of Islam – the Holy Qurân and the Prophetic Tradition. ISIS manipulates religion to brainwash angry young Muslims, who have little knowledge of Islamic theology and jurisprudence.

Therefore, the Muslim scholars are obliged to respond with a counternarrative that elucidates the reality of Islam and its commitment to tolerance. There exists a plethora of proofs that demonstrates ISIS' actions do not represent Sunni Islam and its claims are based on clear fallacies.

The author, Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi, a renowned scholar and one of the 500 most influential Muslims in the world today, presents in this invaluable book a thorough refutation of ISIS' beliefs and crimes. Providing authentic quotes that destroy the allegations of ISIS, Shaykh Al-Yaqoubi reaches the conclusion that this group does not represent Islam, its declaration of a caliphate is invalid, and fighting it is an obligation upon Muslims.

Muhammad: A Prophet for Our Time by Karen Armstrong

Karen Armstrong writes from the perspective of a non-Muslim intellectual. Her book is a very accessible read and easy to get into. It also provides historical context to the life of the Prophet..

 

Islam and the Destiny of Man by Gai Eaton

Gai Eaton lends his almost poetic writing style to explore the meaning of being a Muslim in a modern context. Raised as an agnostic and converting to Islam, alongside his understanding of world religions, lends his book a depth of meaning that many can relate to.

His book covers many topics including: the differences between the three monotheistic faiths, the basis of a Muslim’s faith, the significance of the Quran, the story of the Prophet Muhammad’s life, destiny, the social structure of Islam, the role of art and mysticism, and the hereafter.

 

 

The Butterfly Mosque by G. Willow Wilson

Wilson shares her real-life story about how she came to Islam along with insights into Islamic practice and thought that stay with you long after you’ve read it. She writes with sensitivity and honesty about being a White American in Egypt, which enables the reader to view a largely Muslim country from beneath the common stereotypes. A part spiritual journey, part love story, that is more than just a memoir and definitely worth your time.

 

Even Angels Ask: A Journey to Islam in America by Dr. Jeffrey Lang

Dr Lang shares more than just his personal experiences of embracing Islam, he looks at various Islamic beliefs in depth and addresses fundamental questions that many Muslims and non-Muslims have about the faith

 

 

 

Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources by Dr. Martin Lings

What better way to learn about Islam than by exploring the life of the man who brought its message to the world? This one is neatly organised into short chapters that chronologically cover significant events in the life of the Prophet.

 Conversation between a Pastor and an Imam

An engaging conversation between a Dallas-based Christian Pastor, Mike Backman, and a Muslim Imam, Omar Suleiman. "Out of Context" is a 14 part interview series which answers pressing questions about Islam and gives valuable insight into the spirit of the faith.

 

What is Islam?

The word Islam means voluntary “Submission” or “Surrender” to the Will of God. It derives from the root word “salam,” meaning peace.

 

Concept of God

“Say: He is Allah, the One; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten, and there is none like unto Him.” [Al-Qur’an 112:1-4]

WHO WAS JESUS (PEACE BE UPON HIM)?

Some people say he was a prophet, others call him a god, while others say he was a very wise man. But whatever your idea is, one thing remains certain: he was not your ordinary man.

 

WHAT DOES ISLAM SAY ABOUT TERRORISM?

“…if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.” [Al-Qur’an 5:32]

WOMEN IN ISLAM

The rights and responsibilities of women are equal to those of men but they are not necessarily identical.This difference is understandable because men and women are different, in their physiological and psychological make-up.

 

UNDERSTANDING SHARIAH

Shariah is the practical guidance Muslims live by. It is rooted in the divine teachings of Islam and relates to all aspects of life. Its collective aim is to facilitate benefit for humanity in this life and the hereafter.

 

WORSHIP IN ISLAM

The concept of worship in Islam is comprehensive. It regulates the human life on all levels: the individual,the social, the economic, the political and the spiritual. All activities are considered by God as acts of worship, if done in conformance to His guidance.
