Bilal Mahmud was born in Richmond, Va. and lived there for the first 6 years of his life.  At the age of 6 he moved to


rural North Carolina, to a small town on the Virginia line named Roanoke Rapids , N.C. He resided in North Carolina until 1969 at which time he enlisted into the United States Marine Corps.  While in the Marine Corps, one of his duty stations was South Vietnam, where he was introduced to and became interested in Islam.  Upon returning from Vietnam Bilal became Muslim.

Upon reverting to Islam in 1393 A.H. (1973) Bilal became a member of the Islamic Party in North America.  While in the Islamic Party he received his basic education on the basic tenents of Islam.  Much of that training  was based on the methodology of the classical schools of Islamic training that date back to the time of the Prophet Muhammad.(PBUH)   The period of this basic training lasted for approximately 2 years. 

In 1400 A.H. (1981)  he began working with what is now known as the Al-Farooq Masjid of Atlanta (The Atlanta Mosque Inc. History Of Al-Farooq Masjid Of Atlanta, Ga. ) organization.  With 6 other dedicated Muslim brothers he began to establish the institution that has become known as the Al Farooq Masjid of Atlanta.  In 1400 A.H. the first Masjid built from the ground up in the Atlanta, Ga. Muslim community, was established by the Al-Farooq organization.  Shortly after the establishment of the Masjid there arose an apparent need for an Islamic School to further educate the next generation of Muslim.  This need was satisfied by the establishment of the Dar un Noor school of Atlanta. 

Bilal Mahmud is one of the original founders of The Atlanta Mosque (1977) and has been a Board Member since its inception.  He is a US Marine Corp veteran and freelance photographer and reporter with several blogs and websites, documenting Islam in America.  He was critical in negotiating the purchase of the original property at 442 14th Street, attending and meeting with the city officials to negotiate approval for zoning rights to establish the Masjid.  He also helped negotiate several land purchases, construction of the former Al-Farooq Masjid structure and the current Al-Farooq Masjid building. :
