As a grassroots organization, MAS gains its strength from its members and volunteers. Becoming a MAS member instills a sense of responsibility in an individual and provides a sense of community in the form of geographic chapters.
Membership entitles an individual to participate in the decision making process of their local chapter, to hold key leadership positions, and gain access to numerous resources provided by their local chapter and MAS National. Membership in MAS is open to all Muslims in the United States who are committed to the MAS mission and vision. A membership fee is required to sustain MAS programs. The majority of MAS activities and programs are open to the public, with some being limited to members to ensure sustained commitment and active participation.
