MASJID MUHAMMAD, DC "THE NATION'S MASJID" will commemorate the 77th Anniversary of the community's establishment and celebrate our 2nd Annual N.A.S.I.M. (NEW AFRICA STUDENTS OF IMAM MOHAMMED) Conference.
This historic weekend builds on the 77 year history of the community of Masjid Muhammad in the Nation's Capitol and continues the tradition of N.A.S.I.M. Conceptualized in the minds of three Clara Muhammad School system alumni, N.A.S.I.M. began as a Facebook blog focused on the preservation of the language of Imam W.D. Mohammed. Through this event, N.A.S.I.M. has leaped from Facebook to the Nation’s Capitol with the advice and guidance of Imam Talib Shareef, Resident Imam of Masjid Muhammad in Washington, D.C. Leaders in our community will be conducting dynamic and insightful presentations on preserving and progressing the language, life, leadership and legacy of Imam W.D. Mohammed in their various fields, including community life and development, education, technology and business. The presentations will inspire all of those in our community from the youth to the pioneers and give those in attendance practical ideas on navigating the unique circumstances of Muslims in America. This is a historic weekend that you and your family will not want to miss! www.NASIMworking.com / www.masjidmuhammad.com / 202-483-8832 for more information.

When & Where
Masjid Muhammad, Washington, DC - "The Nation's Masjid"
We certainly, as G-d conscious people, are to promote the oneness of G-d and the excellence and commonality of the human family and have that serve as our foundation to produce a model, stable, productive, and balanced Islamic Community as taught and demonstrated by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The needs, interest and aspirations of our members , those in our association, and all G-d conscious people will greatly benefit in this movement toward a national community.
The Nation’s Mosque, Masjid Muhammad is strategically located in the Nation’s Capital, which is a national and international platform that represents the good sentiments, aspirations, healthy concerns and interests of all the people. Masjid Muhammad is situated to engage leaders from Faith based Organizations, Government Institutions, Business, and Diplomatic establishments. We work hand in hand to strengthen our Nation's collective life - religion, education, job creation, national and international business opportunities, health and human services, housing, senior care, and neighborhood excellence is part of that collective life.
We meet with leaders presenting a collective voice on behalf of and in the interest of our collective life. These leaders are not concerned about individual representation but rather our reach and ability to communicate to our National Association.
It is our aspiration to continue our outreach to those in our national association who are interested in exploring opportunities, international or otherwise, and may require contacting or meeting with select government officials, non-government and or international officials in the Nation’s Capital. We are here to support their efforts and strengthen our unity and representation in the Nation’s Capital, for the purpose of our collective community, platform, movement, and national aspiration for Freedom, Justice and Equality.
