Welcome to Montgomery County Muslim Council

MCMC was founded in 2003 with the objective of encouraging and facilitating civic engagement among all members of the Muslim community in our county.

We are a highly professional, very successful community of immigrants and first, even second generation US citizens. However, we are still only gradually becoming active as stakeholder citizens and residents of the county, state and the country.

Main mission of MCMC is to help Montgomery County Muslim community become proactive participants in all aspects of civic life of our area, including active participation in the political process of our county and the state of Maryland. Through this effort we hope our community will influence in a positive way, affairs of the county and the state.

Thank you for visiting the MCMC website.

President' s Message

Dear Friends,

I would like to thank all members of the Montgomery County Muslim community who are actively participating in the civic affairs of the county and the state of Maryland. You are helping make Montgomery County as a place where our community can thrive and contribute.

We at MCMC are here to encourage and facilitate such participation of our community, thereby ensuring we become a positive political force in the affairs of the county.

In our opinion the first step to effective civic participation is to register as a voter. Those in our community who are not yet citizens and thereby not eligible to vote in elections can still make their voices heard though active participation in all forums where public affairs of the county and state are discussed.

We at MCMC are committed to facilitating such participation by our community in political and civic affairs, so we become an influential voice for the civic and political leaders of the county and state.

We encourage you to participate in events organized by MCMC and send us your suggestions as to how we can better serve the community in pursuit of our mission.


S. Qaisar Shareef
President, Montgomery County Muslim Council
