Allah Kore Cumhuriyeti'yi Korusun, Part XI: Daejeon Islamic Center, Daejeon Yuseong-gu

 "أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لآ إِلَهَ إِلَّا الله - وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا رسول الله"  -  Turkish version!
 Fuyukai-desu - Daejeon-desu - Islam-desu!
Islamic Center of Daejeon (ICD) was established in December 2006 and located in 193 Daehak-ro, Eoeun-dong 106-6 beonji, Daejeon Yuseong-gu, South Korea. It lies in the midst of a triangle containing Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Information and Communication University (ICU) and Chungnam National University (CNU).

Daejeon Metropole is located about 2 hours driving south-west of the capital Seoul, with a population of about 1.2 million residents. The Muslim community in Daejeon is comprised of people who are mainly graduate students, researcher and scientists who come from different Muslim countries to join Daejeon's various universities and research institutes. There are also a few Muslim laborers living within the limits of the city.
The efforts of Daejeon's tiny Muslim community have succeeded in establishing the Islamic Center in December of 2006 with the goal of serving Islam and the Muslim community in Daejeon. The first group prayer at ICD was held on Friday 29 December 2006, and was followed the next day by the Eid prayer of Eid-ul-fitr.
