We have over a thousand families that we are serving in person through our different programs. We also have an online presence through our television called Oromia Islamic Television. Through this tv, we reach tens of thousands of Oromo Muslim audiences living around the world.

Tawfiq Islamic Center is a religious, educational and charitable nonprofit organization registered in Minnesota under chapter 317A and 501 c (3) IRS Compliant. It is a nonpolitical organization established to serve the Muslims and other peoples living in Minnesota.


The Oromo people are the largest ethnic group in Ethiopia and they are believed to be the second largest group in Africa. Some members of the Oromo Muslims, who arrived in Minnesota in early 1990s, felt the need to maintain their religious and cultural identity. Finally, after many efforts, the community bought Masjid Tawfiq in 2004. Since 2006, Masjid Tawfiq is known as Tawfiq Islamic Center, and in 2007 it became a Faith-Based organization with 501 c (3) IRS Compliant.


The mission of Tawfiq Islamic Center is to promote Muslim individual and community development through social and educational programs in light of the Quran and Sunnah​.
