Masjid Muhammad, The Nation’s Mosque
Dating back to the mid 1930s, Masjid Muhammad, The Nation’s Mosque is representative of the oldest established Muslim community in the Nation’s Capital and America. It was established as the first community Mosque to be built from the ground up, by American citizens, in the Nation’s Capital, and it is still currently the only Mosque in Washington, DC that was built by citizens and residents of the District. Located just off of New Jersey Ave. NW on 4th Street (ceremonially designated “Islamic Way” by the city), Masjid Muhammad has long been a pillar in the neighborhood, the city of Washington, nationally, and internationally, as well as a leader in an association of numerous Masjids and Islamic Centers nationwide. Under the leadership of the late Imam W.D. Mohammed (raa), it transitioned into mainstream Islam and has gone from smaller circles of self to broader circles of humanity and the universal teachings of the Holy Quran and Prophet Muhammad (saw). Its members have proudly taken serious the responsibility of citizenship, and is comprised of and associated with millions of healthy-minded hardworking loyal Muslims who are in every field of public service and the private sector, and are making significant contributions to support, protect, and invest in the betterment of our society, the United States of America.
