Indian Islamic Center, Abu Dhabi (In Arabic: المقر الهندي الإسلامي -  أبو ظبي) is a socio-cultural and religious centre for the Indian community that resides in Abu Dhabi.

The chief patron of the centre is chaired by business tycoon M. A. Yusuff Ali. P Bava Haji, Dr Abdurahman Moulavi Olavattur, Karappath Usman, Abdul Kareem Haji, Abdul Salam are the some of the committee members who manage the centre.[1]

The centre registered with the Ministry of Social Affairs. It hosts more than five hundred active members.

History[edit]

Islamic Centre was established in 1971 by social and philanthropic activists from Kerala who regularly assembled at Chithari Compound, a bachelor accommodation.

The center's new building was inaugurated by President of India Pratibha Patil on 23 November 2010 during her official visit.[2]

In 2014, the centre celebrated its 40th anniversary with activities in UAE and India.[3]

Bava Haji is the centre's longest serving president. He played a key role in opening Al Noor Indian Islamic School under the Islamic Centre for the poor and economically-backward. The school closed in 2014.[4]
