The Dar al Islam campus in Abiquiu New Mexico houses a mosque and a religious education retreat complex. Dar al Islam is a non-profit organization incorporated in the State of New Mexico in 1979. The organization identifies itself with mainstream Islam. Its objectives are to help both the Muslims and non-Muslims of North America understand Islam and Muslims, and to serve as a catalyst in deepening the practice of Islam among the Muslims of North America. The campus is located an hour north of Santa Fe and two hours north of Albuquerque. At times Dar al Islam makes its campus available to other organizations and groups for programs that are in alignment with its objectives. Aside from a physical campus Dar al Islam since 1994 has a two-week annual Institute for Educators and currently heads a national initiative in collaboration with others to end domestic violence in the U.S. Muslim Community (www.projectsakinah.org).
