“The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said, “Whoever among you sees evil, let him change it with his hand. If he is unable to do so, then with his tongue. If he is unable to do so, then with his heart, and that is the weakest level of faith -” Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim.
IMANA’s work goes hand in hand with this Hadith. When a disaster strikes or in areas filled with health disparities, IMANA is on the ground to help those affected. But, where we cannot, we try to raise awareness of issues through our robust public presence, and lastly, we pray to overcome these hardships.”

Across IMANA’s programs we meet so many who could use your support. Please consider joining me in supporting one of the following causes:

1. CME
