With Allah's Name, The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer



Ephraim Bahar Cultural Center is dedicated to providing services that meet the needs of the Chicagoland Muslim ummah. EBCC also actively engages in interfaith dialogue and collaboration as we strive to serve and improve Chicago for the betterment of humanity.

Islamic Studies

EBCC offers weekly study sessions of Imam Warith Deen Mohammed's Ramadan sessions. Study sessions are hosted on Wednesday evening at 6:00pm. Pot luck meals are served.

Arabic Classes

Weekly Arabic classes are taught every Sunday at 9:30am. Classes are free of charge and available for both begining and advanced students.

Community Outreach

EBCC's dawah team takes it to the street every Saturday at 10:00am. Foot patrols go door to door educating residents on Al-Islam and inviting the community to return to moral consciousness.

Walk for Moral Excellence

Annually, EBCC is the host of "Walk for Moral Excellence", a community parade that calls the community back to moral decency. The parade is supported by local community development organizations and ends with a rally at Marquette Park. The rally offers food, entertainment, and fun for adults as well as children.

Food & Clothing Giveaways

EBCC is the sponsor of quarterly food and clothing giveaways to the homeless. This program is unique in that EBCC travels to several locations like Pacific Garden Mission to bring food, clothes, and survival bags to homeless persons.

Computer Skills Training

EBCC recognizes the need for technology skills and provides weekly computer literacy classes. Free computer skills are taught on Sunday mornings at 9:30am.

Pioneer Club

The seniors that paved the way for us, during the time of Elijah Mohammed, are continuously active in the community. They hold regular meetings to plan community outreach and social activities.
