Donate to the Muslim Cemetery
Support one of the largest Muslim cemeteries in the U.S.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said:
من حفر لميت قبرًا فأجنَّه فيه أجرى اللهُ له من الأجرِ كأجرِ مَسكنٍ أسكنَه إلى يومِ القيامةِ
“Whoever digs a grave for a deceased person and buries him, will receive the reward of giving him a place to reside in until the Day of Judgment.”
(Saheeh al-Targheeb 3492 – Graded Saheeh by Al-Albaani)
All Muslim Association of America (AMAA), Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1989. Its mission is to establish and maintain a cemetery and a funeral home. Its vision is to provide low-cost burial and funeral services to the Muslims living in Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland.
Currently, AMAA provides burial service including land. This does not include funeral home charges. However, AMAA’s goal is to eventually establish and maintain a funeral home as well so that the overall cost of burying your loved ones can be affordable. We do NOT offer any pre-paid burial plots at the moment.
Cemetery Address: 1112 Brooke Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22405
Mailing Address: AMAA, 4001 Sulgrave Drive, Alexandria, VA 22309
PAYMENT: We do NOT accept any payments from third parties, such as funeral homes, for our burial plots. ALL PAYMENTS must be made directly to us either through this website or check/cash MUST be given to the Operations Manager.
SAME DAY BURIALS: If you wish to have a loved one buried the same day of your request, then you must contact us before 10 AM. It is logistically difficult to do so after 10 AM.
WINTER BURIALS: If a winter burial cannot occur due to inclement weather, frozen ground or similar condition, the deceased person may be kept at funeral home until such burial can occur.
FOLLOWING ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED ON CEMETERY GROUNDS:
In order to maintain respect, safety, and serenity for all, the following are strictly prohibited within the cemetery grounds:
- Incense Prohibited: Due to fire safety concerns
- Pets Prohibited: To ensure the tranquility and respect for all visitors
- Smoking Prohibited: As a gesture of consideration towards others
- Firearms Prohibited: For the safety and well-being of everyone
- Funeral Prayers Prohibited: Due to overcrowding concerns
- 40 cars max are allowed on the premises
- No parking allowed outside on the street. We suggest attendees to carpool during burial
- Violators will be ticketed and towed at their own expense
We have a great opportunity for a Cemetery Caretaker! Please see our careers page for details!
