Islamic Center of Bowling Green
Bowling Green, United States
The first Islamic center in Bowling Green was founded by the local Bosnian community in 1998 on Old Morgantown Road. As the Muslim population of the area continued to grow, the space became too small for the community and the Islamic Center of Bowling Green (ICBG) was opened in May 2005. It is a one-story brick building, with a minaret and a green dome. It is now one of three mosques in Bowling Green.

The center includes Masjed el Rahmah and a weekend Islamic school. There is also an Islamic library in the masjid.
