First Islamic Heritage Museum Opens in the Nations Capital

With the grace of Allah (SWT) for the first time ever an Islamic Heritage Museum opens its doors in Washington DC. After nearly a decade of having a mobile Islamic Heritage Museum, Amir Muhammad, the founder of America's first Islamic History Museum has found a home for his unique collections of historical artifacts.

Br. Amid Nashid Muhammad ibn West, is a well-known businessman and published poet. He converted to Islam in 1974, and he is the author of the well-known book "Muslims in America: Seven Centuries of History, Collections and Stories of American Muslims". The book was first published in 1998, and written so he can leave his children, grandchildren and the general public a clearer picture of America's rich Islamic heritage.

Br. Muhammad is currently the president of Collections and Stories of American Muslims, a non-profit organization which provided the traveling exhibit and museum. When asked about the new museum, Br. Ayman Nassar, president of ILIA mentioned "It is a first step that needed to be taken a long time ago by the Muslim ummah in America to understand their past and have a vision for the future". Br. Ayman mentions "I have read brother Muhammad's book back in 2001, and have found it not only intriguing and educational but fascinating, I think the book is a must read for every Muslim living in America, it is simple, to the point and I recommend it to youth that I teach and coach on weekends, as part of their Islamic studies curriculum". 

America’s Islamic Heritage Museum opened its doors on April 30th, 2011 and is located at 2313 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE Washington, DC 20020 , and details of the hours of operation can be found by contacting 202 678-6906
