Masjid al-Mumin/ Islamic Revivalist Movement Records

Founded in 1953 by Afzal Nabi, Masjid al-Mumin (“the Mosque of the Believer”) was first located at 10609 Superior Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. Imam Mutawaf A. Shaheed and the Islamic Revivalist Movement (IRM, Inc.) came to the organization in 1969. In the early 1970s, Masjid al-Mumin/IRM Inc. began a longstanding relationship with the Ohio correctional system. It also joined Dar ul-Islam, a network of black Sunni mosques who advocated deliverance from an unjust, immoral American culture through Islam. Masjid al-Mumin was the first mosque outside of New York to participate in Dar-ul Islam. Today the mosque is located at 2690 Martin Luther King Junior Drive in Cleveland. The collection consists of applications, clippings, correspondence, educational documents, financial documents, forms, publications, reports, receipts, and registers.
