Advocate for the preservation of the founding principles of the United States Constitution, liberty and freedom, through the separation of mosque and state.


Founded by Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, AIFD envisions a future wherein Muslims never feel a conflict between their personal faith and their commitment to individual liberty and freedom. Organization was founded in 2003. AIFD was founded in the wake of the horrific attacks of 9/11, when a group of American Muslims recognized that it was time to amplify peoples' individual voices as part of a collective to fight the ideology behind the attack that changed the world forever.
