Overview

The Colorado Muslim Society (CMS), or Masjid Abu-Bakr, is arguably the most visible Muslim community in the Denver Metro area. Located in the suburb of Aurora, just southeast of Denver, Abu-Bakr is a Sunni community whose membership spans virtually every part of the global Muslim community. Currently Masjid Abu-Bakr is completing the final stages of its multi-million dollar expansion, thus doubling the size of its prayer facilities. Throughout its history the community has seen some very interesting developments. Anytime there is a spike in national anti-Muslim sentiment, the Colorado Muslim Society regularly feels the brunt of the impact. Structurally, Masjid-Abu Bakr is the only Islamic center in Denver that actually looks like a conventional mosque. It has a large dome with an adjacent minaret and is located along Parker road in Aurora, which is one of the busier streets of Denver. Within a ten-mile radius of the Mosque there are numerous Middle Eastern grocery stores and restaurants. Just a few blocks away is Crescent View Academy, an Islamic parochial school, with which CMS is affiliated. The school provides K-8 education for both Muslims and non-Muslims and stresses learning the Arabic language and general Islamic knowledge. Because of its success as a credible institution of learning, Crescent View has been approved eligible for a voucher system by surrounding school districts. This Islamic center sits on two acre land. Includes an outdoor children play area. Al-Ihsan academy, an Islamic high school is also located here. A multi-purpose hall is available for celebrations (aqeeqah, nikah, walima etc.) Has capacity to accommodate more than 800 worshippers.
