about

International Institute of Tolerance (IIT) was founded on the principle of Justice and Equity

The International Institute of Tolerance was founded on the principle of Justice and Equity. Its services are religious and charitable, and grounded in the Islamic faith. One of the principle aims of the Institute is to integrate Muslim Americans into our pluralistic American society. The Institution is focused on working in harmony with other faith groups and civic organizations to enhance our collective futures. The Institute provides religious, educational, and social services to advance justice and promote compassion. Outside its religious services, the Institute’s charitable intent can be found in its outreach program. This is the essence of the Islamic value system which drives the Institute’s role and functions.





IIT's Feed the Homeless Program


The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) declared:

None is a true believer until he wants for his fellow human being what he wants for himself

Driven by this declaration, IIT founded its Feed the Homeless program in Ramadan 2007, serving 125 cold meals once a month. Members congregated at the Center after the Fajr Salah, prepared the sandwiches, made meal bags including sandwiches, water, banana, and muffin.

Today, IIT is proud to announce that we serve over 1,200 hot meals a month to the homeless community downtown by partnering with Los Angeles Mission. Instead of coldcut sandwiches, we now cook chicken curry and rice, and serve a meal package twice a month!

Building Bridges of Friendship & Understanding


Our Building Bridges program is driven by the command of the Qur’an

O Mankind! We have created you from a single soul male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, so that you may come to know one another”. [49:13]

Community Welfare and Spiritual Empowerment


IIT offers a variety of programs; religious, educational, and social to advance the well-being of our community. These include daily congregational prayers, Friday sermons, Taraweeh prayers during Ramadan, observance of Spiritual Nights every Thursday Nights, Qaderi Khatam every alternate Friday night, festivities, special prayer services, counseling, marriage, and burial rites. Under the leadership of the Imam Qari Ashraf Carrim, IIT ensures the spiritual well-being of its congregation. We offer spiritual, family, marriage, stress, and grief counseling, and undertake hospital visits for the sick. IIT also offers DCFS interpreter services for Muslim clients, and regularly refers members to agencies to seek help that cannot be given by us. We also issue quarterly Newsletters for the benefit of the community. IIT also supports local businesses of our congregants in our area.
