Lviv Muhammad Asad Islamic Cultural Centre
This was the first Islamic Centre named not after the Organisation situated in it, but after a prominent Muslim figure of world importance who was born and raised in the city.Muhammad Asad (name at birth — Leopold Weiss, born in 1900 in Lviv) has made a great input in evolution of Islam all over the world. Having decided to mark the beginning of his new life with a new name, he depicted the influence Prophet Muhammad had on the young man in his first name. As for the last name, it seems that he tried to preserve his Lviv origin in it (Ukr. “Lviv” — “Lion’s City”, Ar. “Asad” — “Lion”).
