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.
Cemetery Address: 1112 Brooke Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22405
Mailing Address: AMAA, 4001 Sulgrave Drive Alexandria, VA 22309
Road Work: Brooke Road remains open to access AMAA Cemetery during construction phase of the road which is scheduled to be completed by end of July 2019.
Same Day Burials: If you wish to have a loved one buried the same day of your request, then you must contact us before 9 AM. It is logistically difficult to do so after 9 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.
As you are aware, the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic is fluid and official CDC guidance is continually evolving based on new information from scientists and public health officials. The CDC suggested during the live Facebook event with the CDC on March 16, 2020 that funerals can still take place under the 50-person limit. For funerals taking place, they suggested limiting attendance to select family and livestreaming the service for those who cannot attend; services could also be recorded and the video shared with whomever the family deems appropriate. They further advised that those who are ill and are at-risk (e.g., elderly, immune-compromised) should be encouraged to stay home. They also urge attendees to follow recommended healthy habits such as social distancing, hand hygiene, covering cough and sneezes, etc.
Virginia Governor Ralph S. Northam told Virginians to avoid non-essential gatherings of more than 10 people, per federal guidelines. In following this protocol, AMAA Muslim cemetery is requiring families to not bring more that 10 people to the cemetery during a funeral.
In addition, starting Monday, March 23, 2020 no deceased will be buried without a casket until the coronavirus emergency is lifted. We must do this in order to safeguard the safety of our employees.
