The Site

Under the guidance of Huzuraba MKA USA has chosen Masjid Baitur Rehman as the location of this year’s Ijtema. Huzur advised us to move away from outdoor excursions and focus more on our spiritual journeys, emphasizing prayer. Get inspired by engaging tarbiyyat sessions, raise your spirituality, and increase your brotherhood by participating in this blessed three-day event.

Getting There


By Air:

Most Khuddam will fly-in to Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI). The airport is served by many low-cost carriers including Frontier Airlines, Spirit Airlines and Southwest Airlines (make sure you search on Southwest’s website because their fare only appears on their own website). You should book your tickets now because fares are continuing to rise.

While BWI is preferred, other advisable airports include Washington Dulles (IAD) and Reagan National (DCA)


Arrival & Departure Time:

Try to book flights that arrive before 11 AM

Departure should be 3 PM or later on Sunday, June 30

Travel time to/from the airport is 30 minutes to an hour depending on traffic and you have to account for time to pick up/drop-off your rental car as well.
