Muslims pioneered to Wichita, the largest city in the state of Kansas and the heartland of America, in the early 1970â€™s. A handful of families bought a small house on the west side of the city and established the first Islamic Center in 1976. By the early 1980â€™s, with the advent of a large student population attending the higher educational institutions, the number of Muslims increased to about one thousand. Masjid Al-Noor was built near the Wichita State University campus in 1983. A modest structure originally built to accommodate the students attending the nearby university, Masjid Al-Noor continues to serve Muslim students as well as many Muslims living nearby. Masjid Al-Noor accommodates about 300 worshippers.
