And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.(Quran 21:107)


Initially started from a dozen Indonesian-Americans in the Washington DC area, raising their concern on balancing the horizontal achievement and vertical relationship of their future generation. Then, on December 21st, 1993, IMAAM, Indonesian Muslim Association in America, was established and registered in the state of Maryland as a Religious Non-Profit Organization. The principles set by our founders reflect to the breath of our corporate values. We strive to provide a house of worship, not only to gain spiritual nourishment but also to empower oneself to achieve his/her goals and dreams.

Our programs are tailored to create a holistic family-friendly program through aone stop-shopping approach. . We believe that a strong principle of each family member will reflect immediately to society values. As a result, we hope that these smallest groups in the society will impact the great Nation effectively.

We, IMAAM; believe that our integrity as the Indonesian-American Muslim as part of the greatest Nation in the world could play a role to other nations as The Agent of Peace through our holistic program Spiritual Nourishment and Social Engagement.

"And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.(Nobel Quran: 21:107)"

And we, IMAAM; reflect our action is solely aiming to gain strong relationship as the best servant to almighty God, the Creator of the universe.

"And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me".(Noble Quran: 51 : 56)
