Muslimat Al-Nisaa Shelter For Muslim Women Domestic Violence Victims

Muslimat Al Nisaa

Providing A Home For

Homeless Muslim Women

&

Muslim Women Victims Of Domestic Violence

Most Muslim men don’t beat their wives

But some do…

“This is a wake up call to all of us, that violence against women is real and can not be ignored. It must be addressed collectively by every member of our community. Several times each day in America , a woman is abused or assaulted.  Domestic violence occurs in every community. The Muslim community is not exempt from this issue. We, the Muslim community, need to take a strong stand against domestic violence. Unfortunately, some of us ignore such problems in our community, wanting to think that it does not occur among Muslims or we downgrade its seriousness.  We should provide support and help to protect the victims of domestic violence by providing for them a safe place and inform them of their rights as well as refer them to social service providers in our areas.”

                  Imam Mohamed Hagmagid Ali  Executive Director, ADAMS Center , Vice-President, The Islamic Society of North America

We the Muslim community have a critical role to play in responding to

Domestic Violence.
