Vision & Mission



“We have given dignity (karamah) to the Children of Adam.” (Qur’an 17:70).  Inspired by this verse, we strive toward the day when every person can reach his or her full potential and we all treat one another with respect and compassion.


KARAMAH’s mission is to educate all people on the just, gender equitable foundation of Islam. We produce, promote and publish Islamic scholarship, from a non-patriarchal perspective, through our programs and publications. We contribute to social and legal discourse by emphasizing core Islamic principles of civil and human rights.  We challenge and inspire Muslim women to become leaders in their communities and throughout the world.
