The Birmingham Islamic Society, composed of Sunni Muslims, is the largest and most established Islamic group in the city, with its three mosques and Islamic Academy.

The Nation of Islam also has a chapter in Birmingham. The Ismaili Muslims, a Shiite sect, last year opened a new prayer center called a jamatkhana in an office park off West Oxmoor Road.

The Birmingham Islamic Society’s annual Eid al-Fitr celebration, a feast to end the Islamic holy month of Ramadan that’s open to all Muslims, draws about 2,500 at the Alabama State Fairgrounds.
