More than 65,000 Muslim Americans make up one of the ten largest religious groups in Los Angeles County. Muslim Americans identify racially as white, black, Asian, and Arab in roughly equal proportions with more than half born in the US and 70 percent of those who immigrated are citizens.
Many pursue the American dream and contribute to the nation’s economy as business owners and entrepreneurs. Their service to community and country is often motivated by the values of their faith – care, compassion, and concern for humankind, major themes found in the Quran.
Muslim American contributions to arts, culture, science, engineering, and medicine have inspired, expanded collective understanding, and enhanced the quality of life for all living in the US and throughout the globe.
