We believe every child and adult should achieved their God given gifts in life. This includes: the gift of life, those who are fighting for their lives; the gift of health, providing lifesaving support; the gift of food, providing basic nourishment to survive; the gift of time, providing support for people to learn; the gift of sight, providing support for people to see; and the gift of knowledge, providing life changing opportunities to people to thrive through education. It is our collective responsibility to facilitate all these and more for each other and the most vulnerable in the world. All these are potential challenges of life that may distract a person from being in servitude to Allah and in the service of others. Our collective responsibility is to remove any potential obstacles and challenges to reach the higher objectives of life.
Scholars of Islam hold that the primary maqasid (objectives/means) of Islam are the essentials (al-daruriyat), while necessities (al-hajiyat) and enhancements (al tahsiniyat) are included among the secondary, or subsidiary maqasid.
The process of creating our 2030 Goal has been comprehensive and practical. Through a series of meetings with trustees, staff, volunteers and donors, the Executive Team has developed a robust plan that clearly articulates and maps out the logic behind our aims, activities, outputs and the outcomes we wish to see for individuals and communities.
We want to support people to study traditional Islamic sciences, PhD research, provide essential lifesaving and supporting aid, and continuous professional development training. This will enable individuals and the community to have adequate resources and access to mainstream and traditional Islamic learning.
We have campaigns, projects, appeals includeing:
Housing and shelter are a basic human right and essential gifts of life that everyone should have.
People in poor communities are more likely to be disabled than those living in wealthier parts of the world.
Millions of people around the world suffer from malnutrition.
