Ummatics Foundations studies how ummatic thought and practice can uniquely, feasibly, and preferably solve the various social, political, economic, ethical, and spiritual challenges facing the Muslim Umma.

This area also studies the ways in which the Ummatics Institute relates to existing umma-minded entities, and what value the organization can and does add to the practical applications of ummatic thought.

Transformation Studies takes an Islamically-informed approach toward the contemporary and historical study of sociopolitical change in Muslim societies.

Political and social transformations, both gradual and sudden, occur more commonly than we may realize. Contemporary social and historical sciences shed ample light on how and why major political and social transformations take place. By deploying the Islamic historical and normative tradition as well as the wealth of cutting-edge contemporary knowledge, these studies investigate how ummatic sociopolitical change can occur in Muslim societies today. This allows us not only to assess but also transcend seemingly intractable Muslim debates on what constitutes an ideal mechanism of transformation, and challenge false dichotomies (such as tradition-focused nostalgia versus forward-looking change).
