ABOUT OUR CAMPUS

Located in the heart of Diamond Bar, CA, IOK’s campus serves residents of four neighboring counties in their pursuit of Islamic Knowledge. Virtually, this space offers much more to the community by way of ilmspirational videos, social media content and online classes available live, or on-demand.

History & Gratitude

Since its founding over 20 years ago, the IOK community has moved through three temporary homes to this permanent home, which continues and grow and evolve in its services to the community. The love and trust of our visitors, donors and investors helps to ensure our mission of Fostering a Finer Future thrives.

1998

In the spring of 1998, IOK began as an after-school Quran and academic tutoring program with approximately ten students.

2001

Upon incorporation in 2001, thanks to wide-spread community support, we purchased a property in Chino to establish the full-time Quran memorization program with supplemental academic education. After the tragic events of 9/11 and the rise of negative perceptions towards Muslims, unfortunate circumstances arose and the surrounding neighbors in the area were no longer welcoming of our presence. Faced with multiple challenges and rising sentiments, we had no choice but to suspend operations at our Chino property in the interest of safety for our students and staff.

2003 – 2005

After three more interim locations between a private residence in Rowland Heights, a second in the Country in Diamond Bar, and a third in Walnut, we transitioned into renting spaces at the Islamic Center of San Gabriel Valley in 2003, and then at the Islamic Education Center in 2005, at the request of the late Dr. Ahmad Sakr, may he rest in peace.

2006

Given the imperative of continuing to educate and serve our community, the need to continue our services developed into an appeal for securing a commercial property in Diamond Bar on Via Sorella in 2006.

2008 – 2012

Despite a recessing economy, with the help of God, the Most Generous, and the unwavering support of our benefactors and larger Muslim community, we broke ground in 2008 and completed construction to open our doors in 2012.

2016

A few years later in 2016, we were blessed with the opportunity to purchase the next-door land parcel and building and expanded our campus to the formidable institute and city landmark you see today. What once started as a fledgling effort in private spaces has now blossomed, with the favors of The Almighty and generous well-wishers, into a far-reaching organization influencing educational and spiritual support programs in the greater LA area and across the nation.
