The Islamic Center of Greater Toledo, with its twin minarets and golden geodesic dome, towers over the landscape in the southern outskirts of Toledo.

Unlike the striking architecture of the mosque, however, the nearly 6,000 Muslims living in greater Toledo do not stand apart from their surroundings. Toledo-area Muslims have, in fact, been spotlighted by the U.S. State Department and a national television network for being unusually well-integrated into the mainstream community.
