'Most Men Don’t Beat Their Wives, But Some Do'

Muslimat Al-Nisaa is an empowering organisation set up in 1987 whose main goal is to help restore balance and the rights of the weak. In particular, MNISAA supports victims of domestic violence and trains individuals to prevent and protect themselves from such violations. In the Islamic patriarchal system, many, many, many men as the imams of the households take advantage of their positions and can torment their families even through emotional violence. And as family problems are personal and taboo for open discussion, our masjids are not ideal places for counselling - MNISAA is an excellent initiative for finding resolves without exposing it all to the world. If only more organisations existed in the UK.

Fifty percent of all homeless women and children in America are fleeing domestic violence. As you travel life's journey, women who are abused, and those who abuse them will come across your path. Learn what you can do to help. 

On the authority of Abu Saeed Al-Khurdari, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah, salla Allah u alihi wa sallam, say: "Whosoever of you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart; and that is the weakest of faith." 

  • To improve community-oriented approaches to the identification, protection, and prevention of domestic violence against women. 
  • To raise awareness of community leaders by enhancing their sensitivity to victims and their ability to adopt coordinated community approaches to preventing domestic violence in women.
  • To increase access to and dissemination of information on domestic violence; and 
  • To foster the coordination of local efforts to combat domestic violence and the provision of services for Muslim women and children in our community
