What We Believe

The Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem

We believe a comprehensive unity of Muslim societies is essential for the confident spiritual renewal, intellectual development, and economic prosperity of the Umma.

At the same time, we claim the Umma is inherently ummatic in its ways of thinking, feeling, and being. The Umma is therefore naturally at the center of our work as a unit of analysis, as an aspirational ideal, and as a potentially powerful and productive agent capable of changing the world.
