About mAFIQ

Dedicated to developing leadership skills in Muslim Youth

Mafiq foundation is a non-profit organization established in 2001. 

The founder, Dr. Mohammad S. Choudhury, conceived this idea in January 2000 in memory of his eldest son, Mafiq Choudhury. He was a young college student who tragically lost his life on March 15, 1983 in a motorcycle accident in Nigeria. 

May Allah (SWT) have mercy on Mafiq and all those volunteers who are striving hard to establish this foundation.  

The various youth development program activities organized by the foundation help in fostering and nurturing basic ingredients of leadership skills and traits of a strong leader. Our year-round trainings and programs foster, nurture, and promote effective communications through writing, speaking, and creative arts via annual Essay Panel Contest (EPC), persuasive argumentation and critical analysis via annual Muslim Youth Debate Tournament (MYDT), and a real-world problem-solving experience to scientifically investigate socio-cultural issues via Muslim Youth Scholar Training Institute (MySTI), COOOL summer immersive program and Muslim Youth Hackathon (MY-Hack). 

Dr. Mohammad S. Choudhury, along with all active volunteers, envision Mafiq foundation to continue inspiring as an exemplary organization benefiting the community at large to attain the pleasure of Allah (SWT). He also looks forward to having a physical property for Mafiq Foundation in the Metro Washington DC area so it can retain continuity of its missions and programs that have touched so many youths, especially in the Greater Metro DC-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) area.

With over a two decade long successful journey, the foundation has annually conducted numerous events for nurturing different skill sets. Please review the “What We Do” page for details about all our initiatives.
