Islamic Organization, Education, and Books:  Islamic Services Foundation

Islamic Services Foundation (ISF) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization established and registered in the State of Texas since 1989.

In 1988, a group of dedicated Muslim parents founded the ISF in the Dallas metropolitan area for the purpose of establishing an educational institution conducive to an Islamic learning environment. The initial plan was to start with kindergarten and first grade levels and to add one higher grade level every year.
