Careers

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.
