Islam in Antigua and Barbuda

The statistics for Islam in Antigua and Barbuda estimate a total St. John's, including the Antigua and Barbuda International Islamic Society and the American University of Antigua (School of Medicine) Muslim Students Association. There is also an Ahmadiyya Muslim mission in Antigua.[2] Outside of St. John's, there is the Muslim Community of Antigua and Barbuda in Codrington, Barbuda.

Antigua and Barbuda have yet to establish a proper mosque, Islamic centre or institutions for Muslims in the country. The proposed site of the first mosque to be constructed by the Antigua and Barbuda International Islamic Society (ABIIS) is located on American Road in St. John's. Currently the location used for a mosque is a small hut which could accommodate about thirty individuals and is available for Friday prayers, the five daily salat, the two Eids and qurbani.
