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.

Islamic Society Of Greenville
The Islamic Society of Greenville is shocked by the executive orders on banning refugees and Muslims. These orders are a disturbing confirmation of Islamophobic and un-American policy proposals made during the presidential election campaign.
Never before in our country’s history have we purposely imposed a ban on immigrants or refugees on the basis of religion. We cannot allow religious bigotry to affect our willingness and ability to welcome those fleeing violence and persecution. Refugees coming to America are the most vetted of all those entering our country.
Say: We believe in Allah (GOD) and in what has been sent down to us, and what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the twelve sons of Jacob, and what was given to Moses, Jesus and the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between them and to Him (Allah) we have submitted (in Islam).” [Qur’an, 3:84]
