Islam in Costa Rica

The statistics for Islam in Costa Rica is around 500 families, or 0.001% of the population. There are very few Islamic organizations in San José including the Islamic Association of Costa Rica led by Secretary General Dr. Abdul Fatah Sasa,[1] and the Centro Cultural Musulmán de Costa Rica in Alajuela led by Jenny Rashida Torres.[2] The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community only established in the country as recent as 2013.[3]
