Islamic Ahlul Bayt Association (IABA) was formed by college students. The Islamic Ahlul Bayt Association was formally registered with the State of Texas as a non-profit organization on February 20, 1997. The students who formed IABA envisioned a house of wisdom, a home away from home, a space to come together and worship Allah. IABA is the only Ithna A’shari organization in Austin, Texas. Today, IABA is a culturally diverse center with a vibrant, young and growing Muslim community. Many of our attendees are children, youth and college students. We are responsible to our youth and work diligently to play an integral part in shaping their Islamic identity.
