MCNA started out in the late 90s by few ICNA Sisters. We began as a class for Muslim kids in a New Jersey home with  20 to 30 kids. Alhamdolillah now, in-person classes are conducted  over 16 States, 65 Cities and over 100 locations, held in several local Masajid, Schools, Libraries and Private locations.


Who named MCNA? A Competition was held amongst the kids, and “Muslim Children of North America” was decided as the winning name.


Our Companion Magazine started out as a column in Noor magazine by ICNA sisters called “Noori Column”, where our kids would write to express themselves. Later on a separate Newsletter was created for MCNA kids, which eventually became “Companion Magazine”. 


Alhamdolillah now MCNA offers many diverse In-person and Online  Programs and opportunities for kid’s learning, engagement, progress and self-expression.
