Mosque Notes


ating back to the mid 1930s, Masjid Muhammad as the oldest Muslim community in the DC area, did not always have such comfortable surroundings for its adherence in the nation’s capital, especially among African Americans.  

When the Honorable Elijah Muhammad (May Allah forgive his sins and grant him a place in paradise) began teaching here in the late thirties and early forties, he found ignorance and despair among his people and hostility and hatred among Caucasians.  For several years, he held meetings in private homes, housing projects and even street corners, until space was rented on the second floor of a funeral parlor on Vermont Avenue and “R” Street, N.W.  This was to become the first “temple” in Washington, D.C., of the Nation of Islam and Brother Sultan X, its first minister.
