The pair were remanded in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court.
Mr Mohammed is accused of planning to attack a military or police target.
Axes, knives, bear-claws and other combat equipment are alleged to have been found at his home, along with extremist material supporting so-called Islamic State on a number of electronic devices.
The housemates were ordered to appear at the Old Bailey on 29 June.
