The Islamic Center of Pittsburgh says its “mission is to shape the American-Muslim identity by educating, empowering, and uniting our dynamic and diverse community.”[1]

The ICP’s bylaws state that it is officially affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), labeled as a Muslim Brotherhood front by the FBI. Its real estate is also entrusted to ISNA. The mosque is prohibited from violating ISNA’s standards and the President of ISNA has the right to dissolve ICP’s Board of Directors.[2]

The former imam and religious director of ICP, Sheikh Atef Mahgoub, is from Egypt and lectures on behalf of the Council on American-Islamic Relations,[3] another U.S. Muslim Brotherhood front.
