Since 1992, the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS-SFBA) has been an active grassroots, community organization that works to educate, organize, and empower the Muslim community to be active, contributing citizens who play a significant role towards positive social and spiritua change.

What We Do

We focus on personal development of individuals through a comprehensive Islamic educational curriculum, and promote active involvement in communities by providing opportunities for community service, interfaith initiatives, youth programs, and civic engagement.
