Muslims in America owe a debt of gratitude to the Honorable Elijah Mohmmed, his son; Imam W. Deen Mohammed and the many dedicated pioneers, whose efforts blazed the trails and set up the lights. Islam was and is their life! The pioneer's devotion and commitment to the leadership of the Honorable Elijah Mohammed continues with the leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed

The teachings of the Honorable Elijah Mohammed begin in Baltimore in 1946, when a brother named Charles Sharif came to Baltimore from Washington DC. He begin to hold meetings in the park and in the home of several people. In 1947 the pioneers open their first place in Baltimore on Madison street. In those days if you were renting and it was found out that you were preaching the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Mohammed, you were forced to move. Next the pioneers moved to Ensor street, then to Fayette street and then to Greenwillow street. The next move was to purchase the property at 514 Wilson street (Islamic Way). Finally, in 1987 Those in association with the Leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed moved to 3401 W. North Ave.

In the face of many hardship, the Pioneers from Baltimore & Washington DC have the distinction of helping to establish temples in Virginia, North Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Boston

In Addition to the Muslim Community Cultural Center, there are 2 Masjids in association with the Leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed in Baltimore.
