2) Mosque (Sunni, Friday sermon in English, Adult classes, Full-Time Shaykeh, diverse congregation, etc)

You will fit well in Irving. There is a masjid that is very popular and has thousands of participants. Here is the link. I am sure the staff will be happy to answer questions you may have.

It is also very convenient to UT Southwestern. There are a lot of apartment complexes in Irving as well.

I think there should be a shuttle between UTSW and all of Irving. Any time I have a vacancy at any property I lease out in Irving, it seems half the applicants work there! It is the closest community with a strong Indian Asian population. However there are plenty of places to live in Dallas that are nice and even closer. In Dallas, look in zip code 75229. In Irving, the largest concentration of Indians live north of hwy. 183 and east of Story road. Apartment communities that border MacArthur Blvd. are good places to look but these days anywhere in Irving......

OK, it's not Dallas but it's not far.

INDO PAK

2060 W Spring Creek Pkwy
Ste 400
Plano, TX 75023
(972) 517-7031

I like it and it's the only place on earth I have ever seen the Indian and Pakistani Flags hanging parallel to each other.

Pretty good selection of ingredients.

Take a look at Carrollton as well, they have a very large Muslim community there, which is very diverse. Traffic might be better than Irving IMO. Good Luck and congrats...

I think the Plano, TX area would best suit your needs then.
Its perfectly upscale, safe, Indo/Pak community and a huge and new mosque called Islamic Association of Collin County and Islamic Schools like Al-Hidayah Montessori School that of course is if you have kids.
Islamic Association of Collin County

Huge presence of Halal meat Grocery stores which sell Zabihah meat and restaurants
Indo Pak supermarket
Meat matters / Al-Thurraya Halal
Star meat and café

It really depends on what your looking for between commute time and home environment
