The entity, with which there are associated all the Islamic organisations of the Argentine Republic, includes besides the Mosque Al-Ahmad and the College Argentine Arabic Omar Bin Al Jattab.
Likewise, the Islamic Center promotes, from the beginning, the firm commitment to work for the growth of the interreligious understanding, managing successfully to do of the Argentine a worldwide example of dialogue and cohabitation.

The Islamic Center of the Argentine Republic is the only Institution, authorized and recognized for the National Government and the maximum religious authorities, which, from 1978, emits the HALAL Certification, in Argentina.
In such way, the Center possesses its Halal Department, in which it takes forward the process of Halal Certification, not only for meat products, but also for manufactured products, always and when all of them should be allowed by the Islamic Law.
The procedure of Halal Certification that the Islamic Center has implemented, answers to the spirit of the international in force procedures in the different exporting and producing countries, following the ISO 65 Norm
