About MAVA

The Muslim American Veterans Association (MAVA) National was Established and Certified in 1997. It was organized to be a Veterans Service Organization for all Veterans of the United States Armed Forces regardless of religion, race, or gender.

The inspiration for establishing the Muslim American Veterans Association (MAVA) National came from the spirit of the “New World Patriotism” movement started by Imam W. Deen Mohammed as he asked Muslims to embrace the best of what America has to offer and to stand up as Muslim Americans and lay claim to our “Shared Freedom Space” as citizens of America.

Imam W.Deen Mohammed

He called himself Muslim American Spokesman for Human Salvation and encouraged the common people and leaders of all religious traditions to return to the purity of their faith. Others called him “America’s Imam”; leader of the Muslim American Experience. He defined it, gave direction to it and devoted his life to it.
