Greenville has been home of many Muslims throughout the years. In the 1980's, Greenville saw a steadily increasing number of Muslims moving into the area, as Greenville was becoming a center for engineering and technology. Up till this point in time, Greenville had no place of worship for Muslims and the community was becoming increasingly concerned about the need for Islamic education as young Muslims were growing up. Within the homes of Muslim families, classes and prayers were established and soon the increasing population of Muslims in the late 1980's would outgrow these homes. Seeing this need, several committed Muslims started to organize and come together with the goal of establishing a Masjid that would be the center of the Muslim community and education in The Islamic Society of Greenville is an independent non-profit organization. It functions to provide a place for Muslims to worship and to spread Islam in the United States by providing religious and educational facilities for members of the society.
