About Masjid Muhammad


American Muslims Against Violence and Terrorism (AMATE) Initiative is a joint effort between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Masjid Muhammad “The Nation's Mosque” designed to counter the narratives of violent extremism domestically.

We seek to support efforts, services, and resources of our communities for individuals who may be going down a destructive or harmful path.
