Philosophy & Methodology

Every gift is from Allah, whether we are born with it or receive it along the way. Therefore, we ought to serve Allah with the gifts He has given us. Our lives have meaning when we endeavor to discover our gifts and to find ways to use them for Allah's purpose.

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.
