About Us

The Islamic Tijaniya Foundation of  America (ITFA) is a non-profit organization 501 (c) (3) created to improve the faith and life of the Muslim African Diaspora and address the challenges they face. Headquartered in Washington DC, ITFA has 32 Hadara groups across the USA gathering Muslims and specially Tijanis into a network providing religious, social and economic support. ITFA’s goal is to guide Muslims in the Sunna of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) and promote an Islam of peace. Within ITFA, members meet to foster spiritual enrichment and interfaith dialogue. 

ITFA’s mission
ITFA’s mission is to strengthen the faith and ease the integration of the Muslim African Diaspora. Its mission has expanded to the Muslim African Americans by creating greater synergy.
ITFA, through the US-based Tijaniya, would like to be the bridge that soothes, the link that unites the people of America and the Muslims of the world, as it promotes an Islam of peace and love.
This work is founded on the principles of Sufi Islam which teaches mutual dialogue with and respect of other faiths, quest for spiritual truths, empathy and assistance to the poor and weak. 
ITFA is a faith-based organization that devotes its means to families and individuals facing hardship. It has developed programs on prevention, education, rehabilitation, and other support services to the community at large.
