Desoto House of Peace
دار السلام ديسوتو
Duncanville Islamic Center, a non-profit organization registered in the state of Texas, was founded, by the grace of Allah in 1998 by Muslim families residing in the area.
In 2002, our community purchased a 2,500 square foot building within a shopping center, which we still operate in until today. Services we have provided since then include: Friday prayers, weekend school, youth program, dawa activities, family and social services, and more!
However, due to the continuous growth in our community, we have reached the maximum capacity at our current location and as such we are limited in what we can offer for our community. May Allah, the Most High, accept from us all that we have done and continue to do! Amen.
On November 12, 2010, we purchased, by the grace of Allah around 10 acres of land at 500 W. Belt Line Road in Desoto, Texas, in order to build our future masjid and Islamic Center: the Desoto House of Peace (DHP).
Our goal is to accommodate our growth and to expand our services, primarily for dawa, our youth, and our sisters. We pray to Allah, the Most High, to enable us to do so! Amen.
Plans for the Desoto House of Peace will include:
masjid with capacity of 1,500 worshippers
10,000 square foot multi-purpose hall
gymnasium/indoor basketball court
modern coffee shop with outdoor terrace
ghusl (washing) facility
offices, and more!
By the grace of Allah, all engineering work and design has been completed. On Saturday, July 21, 2018, we celebrated the ground breaking ceremony.
Currently, site preparation, utilities, foundation, walls, and framing for the roof, domes, stairwells, and upper-floor women's section have all been completed.
Watch the slideshow below to see pics of our progress, from beginning to end.
Please help us with our next steps. We are in need of generous donors like yourself! Be a part of something greater...be a part of community!
