Welcome to the The Muslim Center of Greater Princeton!  We are a diverse community center located in Central New Jersey.  Our values are driven by the Islamic faith and our center offers a variety of religious and community programs.    We encourage you to learn more about the center by visiting us, attending one of our events or participating in of our community programs.  

Our primary purpose is to establish a center for those who practice the Islamic faith and to build a community where people of all ages, backgrounds and faith can come together as human beings so they can learn from each other.  Our center aims to be a beacon of light for the community by practicing the teachings of Islam.  Our members are model citizens through their charity work and efforts to build bridges within the community.  


MCGP dedicates many of it's resources and time on the youth in our community.  This is our future and the leaders of the next generation for MCGP!  We aim to provide a modern facility for our youth to learn about their religion but also strengthen their friendships and give back to the community.
