ADAMS Center in Sterling, VA: Jihad Central
BY John Guandolo MARCH 9, 2015
One of Northern Virginia’s most prominent Islamic organizations, the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center was created by jihadis, and continues today to be a center of the Islamic Jihadi Movement in the Washington, D.C. area and beyond.
Despite this, ADAMS continues to be the primary “go-to” Islamic organization for churches, synagogues, and even the FBI in the D.C. metropolitan area.

The face of ADAMS continues to be Imam Mohamed Magid, the Executive Director of ADAMS and the previous leader of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), identified by the U.S. government as a financial support entity for Hamas – a designated terrorist organization – and the “nucleus” for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Movement in North America.
ISNA & ISIS: On February 6, 2015, the FBI issued a Press Release announcing that six (6) Bosnian nationals were charged with Conspiracy and Material Support of Terrorism. One of the six, Nihad Rosic, was arrested by the FBI in Plainfield, Indiana. For those unfamiliar with Plainfield, it is a small town that also happens to be the home of the ISNA Headquarters, and not much else.
This should not shock UTT readers. As has been documented here previously – from the 9/11 hijackers to Major Nidal Hasan to the “Virginia 5″ to the Boston Marathon bombers, and now to ISIS – jihadis use the Muslim Brotherhood’s Jihadi network in America for logistical, financial, and material support of their operations, and ISNA and the ADAMS Center are in the middle of it all.
Besides this obvious link between ADAMS and ISNA, ADAMS identifies itself as an affiliate of ISNA on its website (see image below).

In the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history (US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), Dallas 2008), the U.S. government specifically states:
“During the trial, the Court entered into evidence a wide array of testimonial and documentary evidence expressly linking ISNA and NAIT to the HLF and its principals; the Islamic Association for Palestine and its principals; the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States and its Palestine Committee headed by HAMAS official Mousa Abu Marzook; and the greater HAMAS-affiliated conspiracy described in the Government’s case-in-chief.” (GOVERNMENT’S MEMORANDUM IN OPPOSITION TO PETITIONERS ISLAMIC SOClETY OF NORTH AMERICA AND NORTH AMERICAN ISLAMIC TRUST’S MOTION FOR EQUITABLE RELIEF p7)
It should be noted the U.S. Palestine Committee is Hamas in the America, created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood on orders from the International Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in Egypt. HLF and IAP were two of the four Hamas entities created in the U.S. The other two were the UASR and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
“ISNA and NAIT. in fact, shared more with HLF than just a parent organization. They were intimately connected with the HLF and its assigned task of providing financial support to HAMAS. Shortly after HAMAS was founded in 1987, as an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood, Govt. Exh. 21-61, the International Muslim Brotherhood ordered the Muslim Brotherhood chapters throughout the world to create Palestine Committees, whose job it was to support HAMAS with “media, money and men.” Govt. Exh. 3-15. The U.S.-Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which documents reflect was initially comprised of three organizations: the OLF (HLF), the IAP, and the UASR. CAIR was later added to these organizations.” (Ibid, p13)
In his order signed in 2009 and unsealed in 2010, Federal Judge Jorge Solis ruled, “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.” The appellate panel ruled unanimously to keep ISNA’s name on the “Unindicted Co-Conspirator” list for the HLF case.
Imam Mohamed Magid, the Executive Director for the ADAMS Center, was the Vice President of ISNA at the time of this ruling, and elevated to the President of ISNA in 2010.
The massive amount of evidence produced in the HLF case also revealed that money was sent directly from ISNA and NAIT bank accounts to Hamas leaders and Hamas organizations overseas. The North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) is the bank for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. Hamas is a designated terrorist organization.
The founding Chairman of the Board for the ADAMS Center is Ahmad Totonji, one of the original Muslim Brotherhood (MB) leaders in the United States, and who founded some of the largest MB organizations in North America. Totonji resides in Northern Virginia, and has been identified by the U.S government as the co-founder of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) and the Safa Trust. These organizations are/were headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, and provided financial and material support to designated terrorist organizations Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and Hamas.
According to the government affidavit, the Safa Trust was raided by the federal government after 9/11 because the organizations and leaders “in the Safa Group maintained a financial and ideological relationship with persons and entities with known affiliations to the designated terrorist Groups PIJ and HAMAS.”
One of those Safa organizations was the Sterling Charitable Gift Fund whose six (6) primary advisors are prominent Muslim Brotherhood leaders in America including: Dr. Taha J. Al-Alwani (former Director of IIIT and the MB’s Fiqh Council of North America), Dr. Jamal Barzinji (one of the leading MB leaders in America), Dr. Ilyas BaYunus, Sheikh Mohamed Hanooti (unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing and the HLF case), Dr. Iqbal Unus (senior MB leader in America), and Imam Mohamed Magid.
The Safa Trust affidavit featured ADAMS founder/Chairman of the board Ahmad Totonji: “Ahmad Totonji is a corporate officer of several Safa Group organizations, including Safa Trust, Inc., and was referenced in Al-Alwani’s 1991 letter expressing solidarity with Al- Arian. Totonji is also referenced in another seized letter from Al-Arian to Al-Alwani. In this letter, Al-Arian solicited more funding and referred to a meeting he had with Totonji where Totonji promised him another $20,000. As recently as November 1, 2001, Totonji signed a check for $10,000 to Al-Arian through Al-Arian’s organization known as the Tampa Bay Coalition for Justice and Peace, drafted on the account of Safa Group charity IIIT.” (Affidavit, p79)
Sami Al-Arian is the convicted leader of the designated terrorist organization PIJ.
When the government conducted numerous raids in conjunction with the Safa Trust investigation, the homes of Omar and Muhammed Ashraf were also raided. Omar Ashraf is a member of the ADAMS Project Committee and Executive Vice President of Sterling Management Group. Muhammed Ashraf is the ADAMS Legal Advisor and was also an attorney for Abdurahman Alamoudi, the convicted Al Qaeda financier.
Iqbal Unus, was the Vice President of the Board of Trustees and an ADAMS Laws Committee member. Unus is also listed above as an Advisor for the Safa Trust’s Sterling Charitable Gift Fund, and was Dean of Students at the Muslim Brotherhood’s Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences (GSISS) in Leesburg, Virginia. The offices of GSISS and the home of Iqbal Unus were raided by federal authorities during the Safa Trust investigation. The homes GSISS President Taha al-Alwani and Sterling Management Group President Yaqub Mizra, were also raided.
A check written by Yaqub Mirza from the account of SAAR Foundation to ADAMS in the amount of $250,000, was deposited into a Safa Trust account on December 15, 1997. On SAFA’s 1997 Form 990, however, this amount is not reflected as a contribution received from either ADAMS or SAAR. Moreover, Safa’s 1997 Form 990 does not reflect any other transactional relationship with ADAMS or SAAR that would explain the transaction.
The close relationship between ADAMS Center and the Safa Trust terrorist support network is evident.
In a 2014 letter from prominent Islamic leaders to ISIS leader Al Baghdadi, Imam Mohamed Magid was signatory #82. In this letter, the signatories make clear their support for Sharia, Jihad, and the Hadud punishments under Sharia, which include stonings, beheadings, and crucifixions.
This is the true face of ADAMS.
The ADAMS Center was created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and operates as a part of the jihadi network in the United States as a hostile entity to accomplish the Muslim Brotherhood’s stated mission here – to wage “civilization jihad” to destroy America.
When considering conducting any “outreach” to the ADAMS Center, organizations should decide whether they want to provide material support to a jihadi organization which seeks their destruction, or put aside the pleasantries and speak truth about who the ADAMS Center really is.
If you are the FBI, you may want to consider prosecuting them.
