  • To be a bridge between Japanese society and Muslims to increase the mutual understanding, and share friendship, cultures, traditions.
  • Hold different activities and programs to let Muslim families live Islam in Japan.

History

Acknowledgement

After thanking the almighty Allah, we would like to sincerely thank to all Muslims, especially in Hiroshima and Japan, who supported this project so that we were able to found this Islamic cultural center. May Allah rewards all of them the best.

We also would like to thank to the Japanese government and its society who are very much welcome and open for other people from different cultures, traditions and religions to establish such a center among their society and we believe that this can be a beautiful way to keep the world in a peaceful, understanding and friendly atmosphere.

Muslim Certificate

Anyone, who wishes to embrace Islam, is very welcome to visit Hiroshima Islamic Cultural Center (HICC). We are so pleased to give you a brief overview of the Islam and help you to be a Muslim.

The meaning of ‘Islam’ is ‘submission’, and is derived from a word meaning ‘peace’. That means a Muslim is a one who submits to the will of God (Allah). Becoming a Muslim is so simple and what you need to do is to say Shahada (Testimony of Faith) which is:

اشهد أن لا إله إلا الله و اشهد أن محمد رسول الله
Ashhadu alla ilaha illallah wa ashhadu anna muhammadan rasululullah

That means “There is no true god but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger (Prophet) of Allah.”  However, the person should say it with conviction and understanding its meaning, then he/she has become a Muslim. Conversion to Islam can be done alone however we recommend you to pay a visit to the Islamic center to help you saying Shahada , and to strengthen your understanding.

At the Islamic center, we can issue you a Muslim Certificate upon request. While being a Muslim does not need a certificate, such a certificate is necessary for some issues such as performing Hajj (A pilgrimage to Mecca), getting marry from a Muslim, etc.

The Islamic Center building has 12 apartments in total. While one of them is reserved for Dawa'h purposes, the remaining 11 apartments are available for rent.

Apartment's Details:

  • 1LDK apartment.
  • Fee: 28,000 Japanese yen per month.
  • Parking: 1st lot (+2000 Yen). 2nd1 lot (+5000 Yen)

It is the first Masjid in Hiroshima prefecture located in the 4th floor of the Hiroshima Islamic cultural center.  As-Salam Masjid is open every day for all Muslims living in or visiting Hiroshima to practice their religious duties such the five prayers, reciting Qur'an, etc. Moreover, it offers the place for Muslims to congregate and practice:

  • Friday's Prayer.
  • Eid Prayers.
  • Traweeh Prayer (in the holy month of Ramadan)

Not to forget, many lectures and classes are being held to expand the knowledge of Islam in our brothers and sisters. Having such a place in Hiroshima brings to Muslims the chance to exploit the most merits of congregational worshiping, and to keep their children connected with the real practices of Islam.
