Faith in Action DC: Imam Mohamed Magid of ADAMS Center

Each week, Faith in Action DC brings you interviews with faith leaders in the Washington, D.C. region speaking about how their faith calls them to work for social justice and serve their community.

This week, Imam Mohamed Magid, Executive Director of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) in Sterling, Va., reflects on the dual nature of worship, what it means to have faith, and the admonitions from the Quran calling all people to serve.

ADAMS is one of the largest Muslim communities/mosques in the D.C. Metro Area and in the United States. ADAMS engages in regular interfaith, government relations, social services and community service, including one of the largest Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Girl Scout programs in the D.C. Metro area.
