Thinking of making the move to Atlanta, what’s the Muslim community like out there?

I’m from Atlanta and I can tell you Alhumdulilah huge Muslim population, many masajids and Muslim schools! Been here all my life.


From where and why Atlanta? If you want strong Muslim community, then Houston is the place to be.


Though I have not lived in either Atlanta or Houston, but if you are looking for a strong and powerful Muslim community - Houston is the city. Countless #s of Masjids, Islamic Schools, Halal Restaurants, cheap, great public schools, and much more. Only drawback is hot n humid weather.


In Atalanta now actually for a study, and in talking to my Uber driver this morning, apparently they have a very strong Muslim community here.

I live in Dearborn so it’s all relative, of course, but driver insisted that he (a Muslim) is able to live a good Muslim life in ATL.


Masjid Al Farooq is the main masjid in Downtown Atlanta. I highly recommend visiting as it is beautiful and jummah khutbah is always great there. Also Roswell Community Masjid is another amazing and thriving masjid with probably the coolest and most relatable Imam I’ve ever met. is a really resourceful site to learn more about what’s going on in the community and city. :)


Moving from New Haven, CT - looking for better opportunities and Muslim community

I heard Atlanta is great for Muslim community tbh. There’s a couple masjids and i believe Roswell is the “happening” town outside the city

Raleigh NC is decent

Trying to stay relatively close to the east coast for my family so Houston becomes a bit expensive for flights- what about Charlotte?

Op I’m in charlotte, the Muslim community is pretty large, a bit siloed but could be worse. Location wise it’s great

Deloitte 2 whats it like demographic wise? Good south Asian pop?

On a project in Charlotte. Nice town, but not much community and culture.

Thanks! A2, what are good areas outside downtown ATL? Coming next weekend to take a look

As a Muslim and lifelong Atlantan I can confidently tell you that the Muslim community here is amazing. Everyone is warm, welcoming, and there are so many masjids around GA. The community as a whole is also really active and engages in a bunch of volunteer activities and events.

That’s great to hear- any recommendations of mosques or areas to visit would be super helpful and much appreciated!

Thank you!! I’ll take a look 😊

Just move out of New Haven to literally anywhere else in CT. I promise it's better.

Atlanta has a awesome halal food too
