Around the corridor of Route 28, between Ashburn and Manassas Virginia.
- Please donate to AMAA, Inc. for purchase of this piece of land around the corridor of Route 28, between Ashburn and Manassas Virginia. This site is going to serve ever increasing Muslim community around this particular area. AMAA wants to make the purchase as soon as possible and have it zoned for cemetery before the local zoning and land use regulations become more challenging for cemetery use.
3) Establish a Funeral Home
- AMAA has future plans to operate its own funeral home with full services of washing and preparing the body for burial at its new cemetery which is currently under construction.
1) Water Supply for Cemetery (Completion Date: July 2016)

2) Walk Stones around graves (Completion Date: May 05, 2013)
- On a rainy day, it gets really muddy and very inconvenient to walk around the cemetery. A northern virginia family took notice of it and donated walk stones to make it easy for cemetery visitors. A few brothers organized a Facebook event and about 35-40 volunteers showed up to install walk stones.
3) Backup Backhoe (Date Donated: April, 2013)
- Additional backhoe enable us to provide burial service without any interruption. Before April 2013, we had only one reliable backhoe and rented out a backhoe in case ours is not working. A backhoe in a good working condition was donated by a brother to help us improve our service.
4) Parking Lot Pavement (Cost: $35,000 – Completion Date: December 2012)
