Annual Report 2022-2023

Alḥamdulillāh this year was another humbling experience of working with dedicated individuals, organizations, and community leaders. Our global community is working hard, and we are honored to be part of this ummah. May Allah increase in the success of all the Muslim ummah all around the world.

Success is often measured on an individual basis, but as the Noble Qurʾān says in Sūrah Naḥl, each individual can actually be a nation within themselves.
