About Us

Islamic Society of Central Wisconsin (ISCW), Masjid Al-Noor, is a non-political, charitable, religious, social, cultural, educational, and not-for-profit organization, founded in May 2003 with a need to cater Muslims in and around Central Wisconsin (Marshfield, Wausau, Stevens Point, Medford, and all other vicinity areas) for their religious and moral needs.

Our ultimate goal is the pleasure of Allah (SWT)* by increasing the love of The Almighty God (Allah SWT)* his Last and Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace be Upon Him) in people's hearts, and through working for the establishment of Islam in all aspects of life with help and guidance of the Holy Qur’an (Heavenly scripture) and the Sunnah (path) of the Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace be Upon Him).

Our objectives are:

  • To present the message of Islam to Muslims and non-Muslims, and promote understanding between them,
  • To encourage the participation of Muslims in building a virtuous and moral society,
  • To offer a viable Islamic alternative to many of our society’s prevailing problems,
  • To promote family values in accordance with Islamic teaching,
  • To promote the human values that Islam emphasizes: brotherhood, equality, justice, mercy, compassion, and peace, and
  • To foster unity among Muslims and non-Muslim organizations and encourage cooperation and coordination amongst them

* Allah is the Arabic name for God, who is the creator of the heavens and the earth and all that exists therein. The God worshipped by Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon them all)
