The Islamic Center of America (Arabic: ) is a mosque located in Dearborn, Michigan. Although the institution dates back to 1963,  the Center's current mosque opened in 2005. It is the largest mosque in North America and the oldest Shia mosque in the United States. With its large Shia Arab population (consisting mostly of Lebanese), Dearborn is often called the "heart of Shiism" in the United States.
The growing number of Muslims in the Detroit area in the mid-20th century sought out a religious leader from the Middle East to serve the community.  After several unsuccessful attempts, Imam Muhammad Chirri of Lebanon was invited to lead the newly-formed Islamic Center Foundation Society, which would later turn into the Islamic Center of America.  The center first opened its doors at a location in Detroit on September 20, 1963 with financial support from Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser and the Ford Motor Company.  Imam Hassan Al-Qazwini led the center in 1997, several years after Imam Chirri's passing, and assumed the role of religious leader for 18 years.  Imam Qazwini became a nationally known Muslim leader during his tenure at the center, meeting with Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.  The Islamic Center of America outgrew its original Detroit location and in 2005 moved to its present location on Ford Road in Dearborn. The Detroit mosque at the center's original site is now known as the Az-Zahra Center, where prayers services are still offered. 
The mosque was vandalized in January 2007 with anti-Shia graffiti. Many in the community believed that the vandalism was the result of recurrent sectarian tensions with the American Sunni Muslim community over the Iraq War and its Shia-Sunni conflict.
On January 24, 2011, an Imperial Beach, California man named Roger Stockham was arrested and charged with terrorism after attempting to blow up the Islamic Center of America. Stockham was reported to be a convert to Sunni Islam who was targeting the Shi'ite community, and had a history of mental illness and firearms offenses.
On April 21, 2011, the day before the scheduled appearance of Pastor Terry Jones, hundreds of people from different faiths gathered in a show of solidarity. Jews, Christians and other faith groups stood side by side with inter-locked arms in opposition to Jones' planned protest.
The mosque operates the Muslim American Youth Academy (MAYA), an Islamic private elementary and middle school.
