In the late 1990s, the Foundation began the process of establishing the first Muslim cemetery in the US.
Before the Noor Mid Hudson Islamic Cemetery was a burial ground, it was an undeveloped three acre piece of land in Cornwall, NY. A cemetery can’t become a cemetery without the proper zoning. In addition to donating land, the ANC Foundation organized local churches, synagogues and activists to lobby for zoning approval. These efforts were successful.
Today, the Noor Mid Hudson Islamic Cemetery is a place where people of the Islamic faith can bury their loved ones as per their belief and faith.
