The Muslim Community Center (MCC) was founded in 1969 by a small, diverse group of 15 Muslims. The mosque has grown to be an important center for Muslim religious and cultural life in Chicago, and as such is one of the largest Muslim organizations in the city. MCC is known as a "mother" organization because other mosques and Islamic organizations have emerged from it. MCC operates two other other locations: the Muslim Educational Center (and mosque) in Morton Grove, and MCC Academy in Skokie.
