Muslim American Society
The Muslim American Society of Charlotte officially established itself in 2006 as an organization dedicated to serving the community, both Muslim and non-Muslim alike. MAS Charlotte is one of many chapters of the Muslim American Society. Based in cities throughout the country, chapters of MAS work on the same mission and vision: to move people to strive for God-consciousness, liberty and justice, and to convey Islam with the utmost clarity. We do this in pursuit of a just and virtuous American society.
With this increased knowledge and spirituality, many of our members race to action by providing needed services to the underprivileged, activities for our younger generation – the youth, and outreach programs to raise awareness of who the Muslims are and what they truly represent.
America has witnessed the expansion of Islam from a few mosques in urban cities to today’s rural south and the Midwestern heartland, or as one poet put it, ‘from sea to shining sea.’ Muslim schools, businesses, political organizations, associations, and institutions, inundate the landscape of America.
