On September 27, 2006 CBS2 reported, "A South Los Angeles intersection will be named for a prominent local Islamic minister under a plan approved Wednesday by the City Council. The intersection of 41st Street and Central Avenue will be designated as Imam Abdul Karim Hasan Square for the Muslim clergyman who has worked at the Bilal Islamic Center for 35 years. 'Imam Abdul Karim Hasan is a distinguished clergy leader who has also provided leadership to the community and has been a leader in the Ninth District for over 35 years at Bilal Islamic Center,' Councilwoman Jan Perry said in a motion introduced in August calling for the intersection name change."
