KARAMAH is one of the central sources of scholarship on Islamic Law. Through original and gathered content, our research department educates Muslim and Interfaith communities about Shari’ah in general and the rights afforded to women in Islam, as well as conflict resolution, civil rights, and leadership. In addition to providing various works of scholarship, KARAMAH also disseminates the scholarship of Muslim jurists and other scholars from around the world, creating a strong body of knowledge which creates the curricula for our unparalleled educational programs on Islamic Law and a variety of other important topics.

Without Knowledge, Action is Useless, and Knowledge Without Action is Futile.


Research is the core of KARAMAH’s work and serves as the bridge between thought and action in the struggle for justice. KARAMAH’s authentic, yet innovative research in Islamic jurisprudence is the source of the knowledge base essential to the promotion of the rights of Muslim women, and human rights for all, in an Islamic context. However, an understanding of Islamic jurisprudence alone is not enough to build networks of Muslim women and men around the world who support this mission. In order to become agents of change, future leaders also need knowledge and skills that will allow them to navigate sensitive issues and cogently present their thoughts. For this reason, KARAMAH also produces, collects, and disseminates research on leadership and conflict resolution.

KARAMAH also communicates knowledge of Islamic jurisprudence, leadership, and conflict resolution to the public at large by way of our educational programming and Law and Leadership Summer Program (LLSP).
